Acer palmatum ‘Butterfly'

'Butterfly' Variegated Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9

‘Butterfly’ is a midsized upright tree that has amazing variegation. This tree emerges in the early spring with bright pink edges over a swirled white and green leaf. As the summer goes on the pink gradually fades away leaving the green inner leaf with a magnificent white boarder. As new growth comes it is tinged with the bright pink accents.

‘Butterfly’ grows 8-10 ft over time. This tree grows best when late afternoon sun is filtered. With its size and color, ‘Butterfly’ makes an excellent specimen, container plant or accent tree.

 Limited Quantities Available !! As we have over a thousand cultivars of Japanese maples, we often do not have many of each cultivar. We recommend that you buy the Japanese maples you want immediately as we often sell out of certain selections.

Butterfly maple

I love these trees. I had 1 in Virginia that I had to leave when I moved. It broke my heart to leave it there. I have the Bloodgood maple the Peacock maple and now my butterfly again. This place is amazing and when my sister visits I take her here ...she has the Peacock and we bought my parents a Peacock maple as well. 1 tree at a time we make the world a beautiful place

Beautiful tree with coral red bark. I was planning to plant this tree in our back yard, but may have to put it in front of our house, it’s so pretty!

Beautiful Tree

Amazing, creamy variegated with such a young tree in a 1gal pot. I can't wait to see the variegation as it matures. Good size overall, as well.
