Acer palmatum Manyo no sato is a rare and unusual maple and one of my favorites for changing color. Maple enthusiasts are just beginning to discover this rare and hard to find maple. Manyo has spring leaves from light to dark purple combined with lime green variegation to create a very unique look. In Japanese the name means ‘wonderful place of nature’. The lime green expands during the summer until the entire maple is no longer a dark color, but a light green with pink and lime tints. In the fall the light green color changes to a tangerine orange and sometimes crimson.
This cultivar can handle full sun to partial shade and has a dense, shrub-like growth habit. The ideal growing conditions would provide for sun nearly all day long, except during hot afternoon temperatures when some shade is preferred. The sun brings out the purple and lime green leaves which makes this maple awesome. The bright green bark adds to the the final WOW factor of this maple.
A moderate growing cultivar – Manyo no sato may reach 7′ in 10 years and for that reason it is an excellent container plant. I am thoroughly enchanted with Manyo. What a color combination – spring, summer and fall and with beautiful smooth green bark it is definitely an eye-catcher. Once established this cultivar is hardy to USDA zone 5.
First photo shows the unique spring color which becomes more purple in late spring. The last two photos show the summer green with tints of lime and pink and finally the fall change to tangerine orange. All of the photos were taken here at the nursery.
