Acer palmatum 'Rainbow'

Acer palmatum 'Rainbow' is a beautiful spring interest Japanese Maple. New spring foliage emerge with stunning variegations of pink and purple. Every leaf is unique and sometimes the leaves emerge all pink. Definitely one of the most vibrant in our collection. In the fall, the leaves age to a deep red. A fairly upright grower and reaching 8' tall x 4' wide in 10 years. An amazing specimen for those seeking that 'wow' factor in the spring time garden.

'Rainbow' is prone to reversion. Any reverted leaves and branches must be pruned off. One of the more highre maintenance Japanese Maples but an annual prune will keep this beauty in pristine colors.

Acer palmatum 'Rainbow' was introduced by Buchholz Nursery in Oregon, USA.
