    Section Macrantha. This cultivar was found as a chance seedling from A. pectinatum subsp. forrestii and introduced by Firma Esveld in 1988. The bark is dark red, white striped. Leaves are purple when unfolding, turning green afterwards. Found at specialist growers in Europe.

    In their book Maples for Gardens they observe that "The leaf coloration is unusual for A. pectinatum."
