Acer palmatum First Ghost
'First Ghost', one in the Ghost Series by Talon Buchholz in Oregon, is a distinctive variegate. Its palmate leaves are creamy white with dark green veining. Young leaves have the added bonus of pink around the margins. This cultivar was founded on a branch mutation of Beni shigitatsu sawa, giving this tree a multitude of colors. 'First Ghost' needs protection from hot sun. It can reach a height of 5 feet in ten years.
