(Revised 1 Feb 2014)
This maple is famous for its pure cream spring colour; another favourite of ours. The name means ‘Floating Clouds’. Our tree is more than 14 years old, but it was kept in the pot until about 8 years ago. Also one of the main branches reverted to ordinary green, and had to be pruned off. It also suffered some rabbit damage after it was planted in the ground. It reached about 2 m high, and is in about 70% shade. Its fall colour is not reliable; can be brilliant.
