Acer palmatum Butterfly showcases an abundance of tiny red flowers in spring, and red, winged fruits in late summer. Both offer a wonderful contrast against grey-green foliage, speckled with cream and pink hues. The leaves become edged with a deeper pink colour in autumn and the cream areas turn a vibrant scarlet before falling.

This low maintenance ornamental tree will grow to an estimated height and spread of 2.5 x 2 metres in 20 years (1m x 60cm in 10 years) and similar to other Japanese maples, prefers a sunny or partially shaded spot with moist, well-drained soil. Sometimes slow growing when young but rewarding when mature.
