A shrubby Japanese maple is noted for the neat texture and ever-changing color of its foliage. In spring, the dissected foliage emerges yellow; a pink margin soon develops, then that shifts to white with shades of reddish-orange in summer. In autumn, the entire leaf transforms to orange-red and eventually red-violet. A finalist in the RHS Plant of the Year competition at the Chelsea Flower Show developed by Mr. van Meuwen and Mr. Keijzer of the Netherlands.
Grows well in full to part sun. Doesn't need regular pruning, but if you'd like you can shape it a bit in the springtime. Avoid any regular pruning, as this could negatively impact the beautiful shrubby habit it develops.
