Acer palmatum 'Butterfly' is a great medium sized, upright-growing Japanese maple with eye catching deeply lobed grey green leaves with creamy white margins, prettily edged pink in spring and turning bright magenta in autumn. Clusters of tiny reddish purple flowers in spring are followed by decorative red-winged fruits ('samaras'). Ideal as a lawn specimen or in a mixed border or woodland garden with other Japanese maples, Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Pieris.

Height and spread around 3m by 2m (10ft x 6ft) in 20 years. Best in dappled shade in moist but well-drained, humus-rich soil, sheltered from cold, drying winds.
