Acer palmatum 'Butterfly', commonly known as the Butterfly Japanese Maple, is a delicate and elegant deciduous tree admired for its uniquely variegated foliage. The small, deeply lobed leaves are predominantly green with creamy-white margins that develop pink tones in spring and summer, transforming to striking red and purple hues in autumn. This compact tree typically reaches a height and spread of 3 to 4 metres, making it an ideal choice for small gardens, containers, and bonsai.

Thriving in well-draining, fertile soil and partial shade to full sun, Acer palmatum 'Butterfly' is well-suited to various Australian climates, especially in regions with cooler winters. It prefers a sheltered position, protected from strong winds and harsh afternoon sun, which can scorch its delicate leaves. Regular watering is essential, particularly during dry periods, to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.

Acer palmatum 'Butterfly' is perfect for Australian gardeners seeking a charming and low-maintenance tree that offers year-round visual interest. Its stunning variegated foliage and compact growth habit make it a standout addition to any garden landscape. Enhance your outdoor space with the refined beauty of the Butterfly Japanese Maple and enjoy its captivating colours throughout the seasons.
