Acer Palmatum Masu Kagami, perhaps a not so widely known cultivar, is notable for its unusual variegated foliage colour. A deciduousJapanese maple, Masu Kagami belongs to the Palmatum group of acers.
The new foliage unfurls crimson at first, occasionally showing subtle hues of pink. The reddish shades continue along the leave edge until late spring as the centre of the leaf begins to turn green. The summer foliage is essentially green in colour but is frequently heavily spotted or marked with fine yellow-white dots that can merge to form large light blotches on the leaf. More drama in autumn as the leaves turn scarlet red before falling with the frosts. Japanese Acer Masu Kagami has mid-sized 5-lobed deeply separated leaves with sharply pointed tips.
This is an unusual cultivar with dramatic colour changes that brightens up the smallest outdoor space.
