'Butterfly' Japensese Maple (Acer palmatum 'Butterfly') - 2 Gallon Potted Tree
1 left in stock
Acer palmatum 'Butterfly' is an upright deciduous shrub or small tree with a pretty variegated foliage of 5-7 lobed green leaves, irregularly margined with silvery-white and light touches of pink on the edges in spring. Some leaves may have no markings while others may be solid cream. Sometimes gracefully twisted, the pale portion of the leaves turns scarlet to magenta in the fall, before shedding to the ground. Slow growing, this Japanese Maple features an elegant vase-shaped habit and is ideal for containers or small gardens.
A part shade lover, this plant is easily grown in moist, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soils. Mulch helps retain soil moisture and keep roots cool.
