Acer palmatum 'Matsugae' Variegated Japanese Maple

We find 'Matsugae' to be a very dependable variegated cultivar in the southeast. In spring it opens with cream and rose markings along its irregular shaped medium green leaves. In summer the rose color fades away and the cream turns pure white leaving beautifully contrasting variegation all summer long. Red petioles also add to the overall appearance of 'Matsugae'. This is a very old cultivar with a name that means 'the pine branch' which is hard to understand for a variegated cultivar. This plant is similar to 'Kagiri nishiki' but is faster growing and has better variegation. Fall color is usually orange.

Rare Variegated Tree

'Matsugae' is a rare tree in the nursery trade. The first 'Matsugae' tree I purchased was back in 2006 while living in California and it was eventually planted in the Nature Preserve in western Michigan. It is still there and thriving. During my decades of collecting, growing, studying and photographing Japanese Maple tree varieties, finding another 'Matsugae' seemed to be a daunting task. That is until I found one at Maple Ridge Nursery. I immediately purchased it and is now with me in a different location. It will be planted in my second Nature Preserve and I will continue to photograph it and compare these photos with my other pictures from this variety in the Michigan Nature Preserve. One of the advantages this variegated tree has over many of the other beautiful variegated maples is, it can take full sun all day long. Even the hot and dry California sun in the high desert of Ojai, California, where I initially grew my first 'Matsugae'. I am thankful to Maple Ridge for continuing to offer rare and unknown varieties for me to study, and photograph and to share with the world of Japanese Maple Trees lovers.
