Acer palmatum 'Peve Multicolor'
Rare Multi-colored Japanese Maple Tree
First and foremost it should be explained that this tree is inconsistent in it's variegation, but in the years where this variegation occurs 'Peve Multicolor' is one of the most amazing Japanese maples of our 1000 cultivars at our nursery. Some claim that this tree reverts but this is not the case. Like 'Ukigumo' there are some years where the environmental conditions cause it to variegate heavily and other years where it rarely variegates at all. Morning sun and afternoon shade gives this selection the best chance to variegate heavily. Rain conditions and temperature also play a factor. It is perceived the colder the winter, that the higher the break up of the pigmentation of colors within the leaf will allow a higher display of variegation.
In the years this tree variegates it leaves out with a heavily sandusting reticulation where the leaf is nearly entirely white with green veining and a pinkish purple border. Morning sun with protection from the hot afternoon sun allows this variegation to display throughout most of the year. Mid-summer the white sand dusting is still present while the leaf becomes more green and loses the spring border. Fall colors are bright golden yellows to orange. In the years 'Peve Multicolor' does not variegate it leaves out as a bright chartreuse green with a purple-red border. By mid-summer it loses this purple-red border turning to a solid green. Fall colors are again a bright golden yellow to orange. Sometimes 'Peve Multicolor' is spelled as 'Peve Multicolour'.
