Description

Acer palmatum Ghost Dancer is not one of the maples in the Ghost Family by Talon Buchholz. This cultivar has been available for several years, but it is new for my nursery. The spring leaves are pale green, almost white with some pink. Summer color is light green with visible veins – this feature is known as reticulation. I guess I would say that it looks like a cross between Sister Ghost and First Ghost. Fall color is yellow to orange.

I am going to keep this maple under observation as it grows. Often a common looking maple when it is small is like an ‘ugly duckling’ – as it grows it becomes an awesome unique swan-like maple.  Ghost Dancer prefers morning sun and afternoon shade – considered a dwarf this maple may reach 6′ tall in 10 years. Once established it is hardy to -20 degrees USDA zone 5.
