Quick Overview:

Acer palmatum ‘Hana Matoi’ has finely dissected spring time leaves that are variegated with pink, red and white. Sometimes the leaves emerge completely pink. In the summer most of the leaves age to a green with occasional striping and transform to a fire red in the fall. Protection from hot afternoon sun prolongs the stunning pink colors well into summer. ‘Hana Matoi’ is a dwarf shrub and forms a weeping, mounding shape. A slow grower only reaching 2′ tall x 3′ wide in 10 years. Makes an amazing container plant or suited for planting in a smaller garden.



Best grown in moist, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Grows well in sandy loams. May be grown in full sun in the northern parts of its growing range, but prefers some part afternoon shade in the southern parts of its growing range. New foliage may scorch in full sun locations in hot summers areas, particularly if soils are not kept consistently moist. Mulch helps retain soil moisture and keep roots cool. Site in locations protected from strong winds. Avoid hot and dry sites. Fertilize in spring before leaves emerge. Pruning is best kept to a minimum, but if needed should be done in late fall to mid winter. Spring or summer pruning often results in significant bleeding.  (Courtesy of the Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
