Acer palmatum 'Ukigumo' is perhaps the most extreme of the variegated Japanese maples. The leaves are sometimes nearly all-white, with the merest flecks of green; other times possessing much more green with extravagant white markings with pink tips & highlights. Sometimes the new leaves are green with light green specks then they change to mostly white and pink.
Planted against a dark background of deep green foliage, the white leaves of 'Ukigumo' lends it all of the impact of a flowering tree, but unlike flowers which are transient, the leaves lend their glow to the garden spring through autumn. It likes well drained soil with high organic matter. Ideal as a specimen, as well as bonsai. A gorgeous tree!
