Acer palmatum 'Lileeanne's Jewel' Rare Red Variegated Japanese Maple
Acer palmatum 'Lileeanne's Jewel' is a brand new introduction with a rare variegation of pink and white on a bright cherry red and heavily divided leaf. Mid-summer colors are a green-red with pink and white variegation. It is estimated to get about 10-12 ft in 15 years. Fall colors are crimson reds infused with hot pink variegation. This selection is fairly heat tolerant as it has handled the sun of Simpsonville, SC, without burn to the variegation. The variegation appears fairly stable. However, since this is a new cultivar, we suggest avoiding heavy fertilizers. Any branches not showing variegation should be trimmed out.
This rare Japanese maple was found as a chance seedling by our friend, Johnathon Savelich, and named after his daughter, Lileeanne.
