Acer Palmatum Orido Nishiki - Japanese Maple Orido Nishiki
Acer Palmatum Orido Nishiki a reasonably fast growing acer and one of the best performing varieties in the Palmatum group in terms of the diversity of its leaf variegation. It is also referred to as Oridomo Nishiki, which is probably the more correct spelling, although the discussion continues. There is some speculation that Orido Nishiki and Oridomo Nishiki are two different cultivars but this is unlikely.
The name Orido Nishiki means multi-coloured tapestry of the master and the variety was introduced from Japan many centuries ago. An intensely variegated maple, Japanese Maple Orido Nishiki has very unusual vibrant pink, white and cream variegated leaves in spring. The variegation can include any combination of these hues, some leaves completely pink or white and sometimes even a green streak appears. Strongly variegated leaves tend to curl at the edges. As summer advances a rich shiny green becomes ever more pronounced through the variegation among the pinks and whites that then turn a mixture of pink and lush green with some white. Acer Palmatum Orido Nishiki Autumn Colour is no less striking with fiery hues of yellow and gold.
Acer Palmatum Orido Nishiki will not get overly large, reaching a maximum height of 5 to 6 metres. They will quite happily grow in containers. We supply Japanese Maple Orido Nishiki as 7-10 year old trees in 20L pots.
Acers are deciduous trees and they grow well in moist shadier conditions and will tolerate acidic soil. For more varieties at Paramount view our Japanese Acers section.
