Acer Palmatum 'Ukigumo'

This is one which of the more unusual acers available in New Zealand. It's calledFloating Clouds maple. Basic leaf colour is light shade of green with the least variegated leaves having a faint shading of pink on edges. Most leaves are marked to some extent by white & pink spots & other leaves are totally white or pink. Slow-grower. Becomes tall shrub type after a few years. Can grow up to 2 mtrs. Not sure where else in the world it is available.
