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.

Growing & Maintenance Tips for Acer palmatum 'Metamorphosa™'

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.
