    Here is a picture of Acer palmatum 'Beni shichihenge'. This little variegated maple is a slow growing shrub. I made this picture in June 2003.

    Mine is in its first year since being in the ground, and has put out a lot of shoots with pure green large leaves. But I'm confident they'll go back to the dainty, variegated form next year!
    This is a late May picture, so the striking coral pink of summer is almost gone. (It was also being eaten by deer, and had to be protected!)

    Even if it was not written on the tag, I think this is a Beni shichihenge

    Hi, I would say that ciltiavr looks more like a 'Higa sa yama'

    My Beni is basically green leaf with some pink and a little cream variegations

    Your tree looks like it has more of a shigatsu type creamy background with pink/green sprinkled in.

    Compare it to the Higa sa yama and see what you think. The 'Higasayama is a very nice cultivar'

    Thank you Mike.

    I have checked in the Vertree's and you seem to be right.

    Do you know what means 'Higa sa yama' in Japanese ?

    Well, I have found the translation.
    Higasa = Parasol
    Yama = Mountain

    Here's a photo of the sunlight through the leaves of `Beni shichihenge', taken last August at the Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle.

    Best wishes,
    Carl

    I think this tree has some of the most interesting colors all season long. The third picture is a double graft I did with a peaches and cream, two years old now and still kicking.

    This is one of my eBay purchases... really good price too. It's supposed to be 2 years old, and I just love the colors on the leaves, although most of the tree has lost that pink-ish hue, and is already the creamy-white color.

    p.s. Sorry, I don't know how to rotate the photos :-x

    Photographing this tree has been a struggle. I look at the pictures above (that I took) and I'm just not wowed. And yet, I remember that in person I really loved it (other than having put peach tones in front of the neighbors' orange toned log home). I think my 'Beni shichihenge' is finally in a location that is appropriate for it (I hope). The dark negative background space and the neighbors' green treeline are creating a nice contrasting backdrop to show off what I love about this tree: that when the light hits it just right, it glows. It is one that draws me from across the yard to come and take a closer look. And the spring pink has a peach tone to it so it's a little different from my 'Orido nishiki'
