Acer palmatum 'Kotobuki'

Rare Pink Variegated Japanese Maple

Kotobuki Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9

'Kotobuki' is a unique new dwarf introduction from Japan. It leafs out in the early spring with bright pink and white variegation on a green background. 'Kotobuki' has a lot more pink variegation than other similar types, so much that the stemming on new growth may be bright pink as well. It is also unique in its shape. It will reach 6 ft tall by 5 ft wide in 10 years making a dense dwarf. The secondary growth is even pinker than the spring growth, giving a great mid-summer interest in the garden. Due to its small shape, 'Kotobuki' is ideal for container growing. Fall colors are bright oranges to bright reds infused with pink variegation.

Trimming back branches in the winter to early spring (right before the tree leafs out) can lead to the most pink variegation. Continual pruning every spring will lead to a heavy pink candy striping throughout the older green bark of the tree giving an additional winter interest.

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.
