Acer palmatum 'Uki-gumo' is a small to medium-sized, slow-growing, deciduous shrub with a very unusual and attractive foliage. Its 5-lobed, deeply divided leaves emerge pale green, nearly white, with pink shades at the edges in spring, slowly turning green with white spots in summer, and then bright peach in autumn. The whole tree has a fluffy, cloud-like look which makes it very attractive and unique. Its habit is semi-dense, upright and compact with some horizontal branches. Floating Clouds Japanese Maple grows best in rich, moist, but well drained, slightly acidic soils. It prefers partial shade, but it tolerates full sun. Even though it’s very hardy, it needs to be sheltered form harsh winds. Lack of moisture in soil and excessive exposure can cause leaf scorch. This unusual plant with fluffy look and elegant foliage will be an attention-grabber in any garden. It’s perfect as specimen plant, and very suitable for growing in pots and containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
