Finely textured, dwarf mounding Japanese maple with a spreading habit. The dissected leaves are pinkish-red in the spring, then maturing to a red leaf with a yellow-green interior. This rare selection by Gilardelli Nursery in Italy is a hybrid of A.p. 'Ornatum', so has a similar growing habit becoming 4 ft tall and 5-6 feet wide in 10 years. The fall color is a fiery orange-red. Stunning! Hardy to zone 5.
