Acer palmatum Manyo no sato
'Manyo no sato', which means "the wonderful place of nature", is one of the most uniquely variegated maples. Its spectacular variegation consists of a light yellow-green on a purple-brown base. Coloring is more spectacular in full sun. However, it is best grown with a little protection from afternoon sun. This upright maple can grow to 6 feet in ten years. Definitely one of my favorite maples!
