For those who love the variegated foliage, this tree is unsurpassed. The green leaves are speckled with cream and white, giving it a sparkled look. In the fall, the colors change to yellow, orange and red and becoming a striking specimen. You can expect this tree to be 10 ft tall x 8 ft wide in 10 years. Hardy to zone 5. More sun tolerant and a bit more cold hardiness than the classic Japanese maples.
