Acer palmatum Butterfly is a fully hardy, low maintenance Japanese Maple cultivar with beautiful colouring. The leaves display a lovely green, interspersed with creamy variegation and often with pink-tinted margins.

Its eye-catching deciduous foliage makes the tree an ideal feature plant, and it can be grown in soil or in a large container – provided it’s well watered.

Due to its fairly compact size, the Acer will suit any size garden or patio, and prove to be an easy care choice for a patio tree with its minimal pruning needs.

Choose your preferred pot size - 9cm, 3L or 10L - from the selection menu. This is always subject to stock availability.
