Quick Overview:

Acer palmatum ‘Peaches and Cream’ is one of the most stunningly and vivid reticulated (marked like a net) Japanese maples. New spring leaves emerge with beautiful rosy, peach and cream colored tones. Amazing dark colored veins accentuate the overall shape of the leaf. As summer approaches, the leaves transition into reticulated green and cream colored leaves. Fall brings on a spectacle of yellows and oranges. An upright, small deciduous tree that reaches 8′ tall x 5′ wide in 10 years. Acer palmatum ‘Peaches and Cream’ is slow grower and a beautiful year round interest tree. Mid size makes it suitable for small or large garden landscapes.


Easily grown in moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers lightly sun dappled part shade. Avoid hot and dry sites. Leaves may scorch in full sun in hot southern summers. Plant in a location protected from strong winds.  (Courtesy of the Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
