PALMATUM, variegated. Syn. 'Higasa yama'An upright-growing tree, forming a tall slender V-shape. Slow growing twiggy stems bear two forms of foliage, a characteristic often seen and enjoyed in Acer palmatum. Tiny, crinkled, variegated spring leaves curl as though the leaf margin is too small for the leaf. Various green leaves have white markings and are edged in pink. A second flush of growth in late June or July reveals small, flat summer leaves of the typical palmate shape.

People get really excited about this cultivar because of the leaf coloration, but it is a major pain to get the tree to exhibit it. If the tree is growing hard, none of the new leaves will show this leaf so if you want to see it, give your tree no fertilizer and hardly any water. zone 5
