Acer palmatum 'Peve Multicolor' is a very unique variegated Japanese maple that offers year round interest. New leaves can emerge almost completely white with bright pink margins. As summer approaches the leaves age green but still retains the white 'sand dust' variegation. Reticulated green veins also run throughout the leaves that accentuante a beautiful leaf form. We find that this cultivar can sometimes have inconsistent variegation and varies depending on environmental conditions. Definitely has a stunning display of 'multi colors'. 'Peve Multicolor' is a dwarf, upright tree that can reach 5' tall x 3' wide in 10 years. Makes a great container plant or suitable for the smaller garden.
Acer palmatum 'Peve Multicolor' originated from Vergeldt Nursery in Holland.
