This unique variety of Japanese Maple features green and yellow variegated leaves, with silvery margins that turn pinkish during the spring. During the fall, the red to magenta leaf is prevalent prior to the tree losing its leaves and going dormant. Japanese Maple bonsai trees, or Acer Palmatum, are highly prized as bonsai due to their unique leaves. Acer palmatum 'Butterfly' bonsai tree arrives in a 8"L ceramic bonsai pot. Pot may vary depending on availability. Tree measures 18"-20" tall potted.
Japanese maple trees are easy to take care of. However, due to their deciduous nature, we recommend them for intermediate and advanced enthusiasts.
During the warmer months, leaf scorch may occur for this species of maple if exposed to heat, winds, and salt. Trees may arrive with some leaf burn which is a normal process of growth and leaf rotation.
