Acer palmatum 'Gwen's Rose Delight'
‘Gwen’s Rose Delight’ in spring is a dazzling display as new leaves emerge a bright cherry red or bright pink with olive green. As temperatures heat up the red or pink is joined by cream and green, but unlike many variegated cultivars at least some of the pink color remains all sumer long in all but he hottest climates. While sun brings out the best color, this plant needs afternoon shade especially in hot climates. Fall color ranges from red to orange. Introduced by Duncan & Davies Nursery in New Zealand.
