A spectacular variegated Palmatum Group maple. the parents are 'Shigitatsu sawa' X 'Aka shigitatsu sawa'. Leaves emerge pinkish-cream with a green flush. Summer leaves are pink-edged cream with dark green veins. Fall colour is yellowish. It is certainly one of the most spectacular cultivars. It was released by Arnold Teese or Monbulk, Victoria, Australia.
