Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

This striking Acer has been given the poetic name ‘Floating Cloud Maple’ due to its unusual, variegated foliage. Each leaf bears a unique pattern of pale green sprinkles against a cream background with a blush of pink spreading from the tips. Some leaves emerge completely cream whilst others are more speckled and their colours evolve during the growing season. The overall effect is stunning - forming a tree with a pale, floaty appearance – it’s especially striking set against a background of darker foliage. In autumn, the foliage develops rich yellow-orange tones before falling to unveil an elegant tracery of fine, tiered branches. Acers are slow growing and make ideal specimens for small gardens and containers where they provide multiple seasons of interest. Height and Spread: 250cm (98in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow Acers in any moist, fertile, well drained soil in sun or dappled shade. It's important to give plants shelter from strong winds which can scorch the leaves.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until acer trees are well established. Protect plants from strong winds. Acers require little pruning other than to maintain their shape. Lightly trim stems if necessary from late autumn to midwinter.
