Acer palmatum 'First Ghost'
Reticulated Variegated

Japanese Maple

Ghost Series

Zones 5-9

'First Ghost' is the first and one of the best of the Ghost series of Japanese maples. 'First Ghost' leafs out in the early spring with bright white to cream sharply divided leaves which are accented by deep green veining to the leaf on the inside while the outside of the leaf is edged in a red purple.

Mid-summer this reticulated variegation on 'First Ghost' may fade to a dark green veining on a lighter green background. For best and longest spring coloration, protection from the hot afternoon sun is recommended. Growing in a semi-pendulous habit, First Ghost reaches 10-12 ft in 15 years with an equal spread. Fall colors are bright golden yellows to orange. 'First Ghost' is gorgeous Japanese maple and is a necessity for any garden.

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.

First Ghost

I purchased a Acer palmatum ‘First Ghost’ 2 weeks ago from Mr. Maple. The beautiful reticulated leaf on the First Ghost is amazing and will light up any shady area in your yard. I actually purchased a Purple Ghost several weeks prior and having the two paired together is amazing.
