    I have created this thread ready for anyone who like me now has this maple on it's way to them.
    I was not expecting this, but it was an unexpected gift.
    This cultivar 'Olivia' is now the correct name given by Hippopottering maples from it's previous name of Ukigumo nishiki.
    Photos to follow shortly.

    29th May 2021 and my new Olivia arrived. The variegation is not on all leaves as yet, but looking at the growth, this will happen as they age.
    It has been planted in a bit more sun than my Ukigumo, but not full sun.
    I will update the forum over the coming years in it's progress.

    5th June 2021 and my Olivia has settled nicely in my garden, so here is a photo of some new growth.

    25th June 2021 and the leaves are holding onto the variegation quite nicely on my Olivia. It is in a sunnier spot than Ukigumo and seems to be fine.
