Acer palmatum 'Hana tsukasa' is HEAVILY variegated. This maple's leaves are very willowy so that combination means that you should really not explose this plant to anything other than morning sun... just to be safe. This maple will burn easily with too much sun.

Not an easy cultivar to find (according to my maple-hunting experience)!
