    Whichever one reverts to green the most quickly . . . guess that'd be Acer negundo 'Variegatum'

    My vote is for A.P. ‘Higasayama’ first picture taken in the spring of 1999. This was taken in early spring ( May 1) with morning sun supplying the lighting effects. Second picture taken April 22 2006 with lots of flowers.

    Sagara nishiki. Mature leaves are gorgeous both in spring and fall. Amazingly beautiful tree!

    My favourite two variegated Japanese Maples are Ukigomo (mines has been stunning this year so far) & Higasa Yama. I also have a small Acer Negundo Flamingo which is nice too.
