Acer palmatum is a deciduous, woody shrub native to parts of Asia and Russia. There are many garden-worthy cultivars available, which have been bred for their leaf shapes and colours.
Acer palmatum 'Butterfly' makes a beautiful small tree, bearing light green, five-lobed leaves flecked with cream. In spring, the leaves are often edged with pink, and in autumn the cream areas turn deep scarlet before falling.
For best results, grow Acer palmatum 'Butterfly' in moist but well-drained soil in partial shade. Protect it from the harshest winds, which may cause leaf scorch.
Plant type: Deciduous tree
Feature: Autumn colour, Colourful new growth
Sun exposure: Partial shade
Soil: Well-drained/light, Acidic, Chalky/alkaline
