Acer palmatum 'Asahi Zuru' is also known as the Rising Sun Japanese Maple. This highly variegated semi-dwarf brings pulls white and pink colors together into a deep green leaf. The Rising Sun Japanese Maple's variegation consists of sections (sometimes an entire laef) being entirely white or entirely pink. It is basically a better Orido Nishiki, with speactacular multicoloration on new growth and a more compact form. The motely coloration on new growth is even more spectacular. However, the growth is not as fast, compared with 'Orido Nishiki'. Fall foliage is a blend of oranges and reds. Although it is named the Rising Sun Japanese maple, the Asahi zuru requires shade from the hot afternoon sun.
