Gorgeous variegated Maple with a beautiful leaf shape and very pale green and cream foliage, lending it the name of 'floating cloud'. Ukigumo has lovely red foliage in Autumn. This maple prefers a bright dappled shade position, the full sun will scorch its leaves. Plant in a neutral to slightly acidic soil, well drained but moisture retaining. Ideal for pots but do not be tempted to over pot, keep tight in its container and water regularly.
