Japanese Maples and Conifers

Acer palmatum 'Iro Iro'

 

With a name that means beautiful color this introduction from Talon Buchholz can not help but be a hit. The new foliage on this little bushy cultivar emerges chartreuse edged in red. As the leaves harden off they develop a cream an pink variegation reminiscent of 'Higasa yama'. The variegation fades as summers thermometer rises leaving an attractive medium green little dwarf for the rest of summer. This little guy is most happy in morning sun and afternoon shade.
