Acer palmatum 'Peve Starfish'

Rare Peve Starfish Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9

Introduced by Piet Vergeldt, this maple is truly unique. In fact, "Peve" is a combination with his name which Piet uses for many of his introductions. 'Peve Starfish' forms a mid-sized dwarf reaching 6-8 ft in 20 years. Its small stature and its unique leaves that cup downward give the appearance of a "starfish".

Peve Starfish leafs out as a bright red in the early spring maturing to a deep maroon. New growth flushes are again a bright red. In the autumn, 'Peve Starfish' will light up your landscape turning to a bright crimson red. This is one of our favorites of these new selections.

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.

I ordered this plant on a Sunday evening and received it Wednesday of the same week. The packaging is well done so it arrived in good shape. Good looking plant.

Amazing tree

This tree arrived healthy and looks great. I have five Japanese Maples and have this one as a center piece next to the patio due to is small size and interesting leaves. Totally satisfied.

Ace of an Acer!

Starfish arrived in excellent shape. Color and size was as described. Each of the several Acers I have purchased from Mr Maple been delivered to me as described and quite quickly. The unique leaf shape will have this one in a “center stage” position in our garden. Thank you Mr Maple, really enjoy buying quality from quality!


I fell in love with this as soon as it was delivered! It arrived perfectly packaged and looks healthy! Such a lovely and adorable maple. I can't wait to watch it grow.
