alex66, I strongly urge you to find an Ukigumo right away. Don't wait till autumn. I have 3 Ukigumos in my garden and feel these cultivars are truly outstanding. Each Ukigumo of mine displays a very subtle pink at the margins, but only for a short time in April. This pink color fades quickly, giving way to the parchment color/white and green spots characteristic of this maple. It's hard to describe one of these trees back-lighted by the sun because it does, indeed, appear to float, and I feel this cultivar deserves more serious attention. It's a highly desirable form. This photo was taken on July 10, 2007, and this Ukigumo lives in bright filtered light.
