    Not sure how this ugly thing with badly distorted and discoloured leaves can be called "super, beautiful"!! It just looks diseased.

    "one man's meat is another man's poison" as it is said.
    My Waldersii has a fu-like variegation dusting not the
    Drummondii-like solid green variegation of alex' above plant
    and the leaves are less incised, more palmate.
    if one loves variegation like I do (and I think alex does), this
    is a lovely plant

    Any species, in its natural wild-occurring form!

    A really big old Acer pseudoplatanus is a superb sight, with its shaggy-scaly pinkish bark and stout 'muscular' trunk and branches. A group of Acer platanoides in flower in early spring in the Alps is beautiful, too. Further afield, Acer maximowiczianum with its delightful softly furry leaves is one of the best maples. And an old Acer macrophyllum draped in rainforest mosses and lichens is something I would very much like to see too.

    Should have speckling producing an overall gray appearance, this is something else.

    alex, i do not have a digital camera, but as I implied in my
    post my Waldersii is somewhat different from yours, just
    speckled like a washed-out green color or greyish just like
    Ron says above.
    alex, you are always welcome. You give a great deal to this forum.

    Looked at some of these at a local garden center. As you say the younger, outer portions of the branches have these partly green leaves with the rest producing entirely (or nearly so) stippled leaves.
