This acer has lovely soft, lime-green spring foliage contrasting with the pink-red shoots. The leaves are light green through the summer, taking on an attractive yellow-orange-red mottling in the autumn before turning a light, crimson red. The habit remains compact and bushy and it will reach no more than 3 m at maturity. This makes it a perfect maple for a small garden. An amazing variety with colourful features all year.
