Acer palmatum 'Celebration'

'Celebration' Pink Reticulated Variegated

Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9

'Celebration' leafs out as a vibrant pink-purple with reticulated ghost-like variegation. In the south, by early summer this variegation turns creamy with dark defined reticulated veins in the leaf. The new growth returns to the vibrant pink-purple. Fall color is an intense fuchsia red.  We expect 'Celebration' to reach 10 ft in 10 years.

Talon Buchholz claims that 'Celebration' may simply be his best introduction yet. It was found in 2007 from a batch of 'Purple Ghost' seedlings. 'Celebration' performs best with its color when given protection from the hot afternoon sun.

Wow! Stunning tree with a lot of varigation. Currently it is pinks and green. The tree is at least 2 feet and very healthy. I put it in a pot so I can play around with sun and shade for the best results.

Favorite Japanese Maple

Wow. Wow. Wow. This maple is unbelievably beautiful. It is by far my favorite & I do not see that changing EVER. Not only is the foliage exceptionally pink but it has the best & darkest trunk/branches/stems.
I can just picture the contrast now come Spring time. The anticipation build up is wonderful! Perfect pairing to my collection. Thank you

Amazing color

Celebration is one of my top 5 favorite maples. I purchased mine 2 springs ago. The colors on this tree are a vibrant pink with the contrast of the jet black veins really make this one stand out! Mine has survived my fiance dropping it which broke the tree in half while it was still in the nursery pot, it bounced back, I planted it late spring and then rabbits decimated it to just 5 leaves. It is still alive and i am just waiting for the weather to break so I can see that beautiful neon pink this spring. It looked best the 1st spring i had it on my covered front porch before planting it. It got sun from 8am until around 12- 1pm. That sunlight exposure kept the leaves a bright neon pink before i planted it in a full sun location. If you want to see this trees best colors, I highly recommend morning sun only, it now gets sun from 9am-6pm. The pink color fades within about a month, but it can definitely last well into mid - late summer given the proper sun conditions! A very eye catching tree that I may have to get one just for my covered front porch so I can enjoy it more often!
