Hana Matoi' is the first Japanese Maple combining good growth with lacinated variegated leaves.
Like a kaleidoscope, the young delicately jagged spring foliage sports wide variegations, dark to pale pink, dark to light red, creamy white, followed by a few touches of dark green. This show of colours is particularly highlighted on young, tender, green branches.
The mature leaves vary from bronze to deep purple and offer a good contrast with the young variegated shoots of summer.
In autumn, the shrub turns orange red. In winter the branches stay striped with yellow.
A deciduous shrub with an average growth. Its arched branches give it a supple and rounded, but still dense shape.
To be planted individually in beds or in pots to decorate the garden, terrace and balcony, with preference in humus-rich soil.
Prune lightly at the end of winter, if necessary.
