Acer palmatum Sister Ghost is my favorite ˜Ghost ™ maple. A dwarf maple that has whitish-green leaves with dark green veins when grown with morning sunlight This feature of visible veins is known as ˜reticulation ™. The leaves are moderately dissected giving them a softer look. In the summer months the leaves can show tints of pink and yellow while the leaves underneath that do not get any sunlight remain greener. As with other light-colored maples morning sun and afternoon shade is preferred.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring. We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture."
