Positive Todd_Boland On Dec 23, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This is considered one of the best variegated Dissectum Group Japanese Maples. The foliage is green overlaid with minute dots, specks or flecks of gold and cream. In the fall, the leaves turn clear yellow. The leaves are double-dissected giving them a pleasing lacy appearance. Plants have a mounding habit and will reach 2 m high and 3 m wide.
