ACER palmatum 'Peaches and Cream'
Japanese Maple, Peaches and Cream Japanese Maple
Japanese maple is a small tree native to eastern Asia. An Australian introduction, the cultivar 'Peaches and Cream' features strikingly variegated leaves which are creamy-white and rose-pink in spring, pale green with deeper green veins in summer, and bright gold and orange in fall. The palmate (hand-shaped) leaves are elegantly divided into narrow lobes. The habit is upright and compact. In winter, the gray branches add to the garden or landscape.
Japanese maple prefers sites with rich, acidic, well-drained soil and part sun to part shade. It is versatile in the landscape and may be grown as a feature plant, in a mixed border, or in a container.
