Easy to Grow Japanese Maples
Out of stock
The Butterfly maple is a lovely Acer palmatum with smaller leaves that are variable in shape and known for their beautiful variegated leaf color. The leaves display an array of creams and greens with light pink margins. In the fall, Butterfly has a very nice show of magenta along the margins, before changing to orange, giving it a whole new look. This tree grows with a habit that is rather twiggy and vase-shaped, with growth up to 15 feet tall. A reliable variegated maple, the Butterfly is very sturdy and tolerates sun in hot climates, (in very hot areas give partial shade in afternoon). Best suited for zones 5-8.
