Acer palmatum 'Taimen nishiki'
Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9


'Taimen nishiki' is one of the rarest trees to find truly variegated. All 1 gallons listed display good variegation. 'Taimen nishiki' is a selection from 1882 in Japan that is extremely rare in cultivation because it does revert fairly often. Spring color on 'Taimen nishiki' is a bright fiery red over top of dark maroon. The variegation turns to a pink-red, then to a cream. It is best to prune out any reversion after the spring flush. When you do this, secondary growth during the summer displays quite a bit of variegation. 'Taimen nishiki' means "Variegation of the Ming Dynasty". 'Taimen nishiki' may reach 8-10 ft in 15 years. Fall color is a bright scarlet red.
