Japanese Maple 'Peaches and Cream'

  • Foliage: The standout feature of 'Peaches and Cream' is its exquisite foliage. In spring, the leaves emerge in shades of peach, pink, and cream, creating a soft and delicate appearance reminiscent of pastel-colored sorbet. As the season progresses, the foliage matures to a blend of creamy white and green, offering a captivating contrast in the landscape.

  • Variegation: What sets 'Peaches and Cream' apart is its variegated foliage, which adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any garden. The variegation is random and unique, with each leaf displaying its own distinct pattern of colors and markings.

  • Compact Size: This cultivar is prized for its compact and slow-growing nature, making it an excellent choice for smaller gardens, courtyards, and container plantings. It typically reaches a height of 6 to 8 feet at maturity, with a similar spread, making it easy to incorporate into various landscape settings.

  • Form: 'Peaches and Cream' exhibits a graceful and weeping habit, with delicate branches that gently arch and cascade, creating an elegant silhouette. The cascading form adds a sense of movement and fluidity to the garden, making it a focal point of visual interest.
