Acer palmatum V-Y
Vic Pink (dissectum)
A green-leaved cultivar considered by some authorities to be identical to Palmatifidum but in reality differing markedly, since vigorous growth gives this cultivar height quickly whilst the late spring and summer growth is heavily tinted with rusty pink. Autumn colour is bright red.
Villa Taranto (medium)
A linearilobum cultivar with an unusual colour combination. Leaves open orange-red and gradually turn green with an overtone of light purple-red. Shaded portions of the plant remain green giving rise to a two-tone effect. Autumn sees a change to yellow and orange.
Waka momiji Variegated (medium)
A bud sport of Waka momiji with attractively variegated leaves of pink and cream similar to Karasugawa.
Wakehurst Pink (medium)
Deeply-divided and serrated leaves open a bronzy green but deepen to a bronzy purple streaked and speckled with pink and occasionally white. The variegation, however, can often take a year or two to appear on young plants.
Very lacy leaves are reddish-pink in spring to grey-green in summer and overlaid with the bright deep pink of the second flush. Autumn colours are pinkish-red and orange.
Wilson's Pink Dwarf (small)
Narrow-lobed leaves are bright pink to reddish-pink in spring on multiple-branching shoots. The colour holds for a month or more, gradually changing to mid green in summer. The second flush of leaves tend to be more orange-pink.
Winter Flame (medium)
A recent introduction from New Zealand, this cultivar is a smaller, more compact version of Sango kaku. Small, lime-green leaves darken and take on a light orange tint in summer and then change through mottled yellow, orange and red to crimson red with the bark a bright coral red in winter.
Wou nishiki (medium)
A narrowly-upright, twiggy cultivar with bright, yellow-green leaves heavily margined with rusty rose-red. Leaves become light green in summer and bright crimson in autumn.
Deeply-divided, shiny, dark-red leaves show a close affinity to Acer shirasawanum, one of the putative parents of this cultivar. The large, nine-lobed leaves turn bronze-green in late summer and red in autumn.
