Olsens Frosted Strawberry

Acer palmatum Olsens Frosted Strawberry is a great Acer palmatum cultivar discovered as a seedling from a Aka shigitatsu sawa plant by Harry Olsen. This exciting cultivar is sure to attract attention in your landscape. Leaves emerge with strawberry cream colors and then change into a lovely variegate.  Growth habits appear to be similar to Aka shigitatsu saw - that is - Semi slow growing and weeping in habit. Will grow to about 6' in 10 years.  Seems to hold the heat and tolerate sun well. The leaves are more narrow lobed than Aka shigitatsu sawa. Fall colors are a wonderful yellow - orange to red. Sun / part shade in extreme hot climates.
