Lil Anne’s Jewel Japanese Maple:

 Lil Anne’s Jewel Japanese maple is an exciting new variegated Japanese maple that everyone is talking about! The only problem is this beauty seems to have multiple names. We will defer to Jan and Kevin Kelly of Kellygreen Nursery in Drain , Oregon, and call it ‘Lil Anne’s Jewel’. By our reckoning, ‘Lileeanne’s Jewel’ and ‘Little Ann’s Jewel’ are also referring to the same exact tree.

By any name, this plant is the  BEST red variegated Japanese maple, by far. The pink and white variegation is remarkably consistent. While Acer palmatum ‘Rainbow’ can certainly have its moment, carries the stunning variegation throughout the year. Here at Garden Design Nursery, we have not seen any reversion on ‘Lil Anne’s Jewel’. Woo-hoo!

Lil Anne’s Jewel Japanese maple is a vigorous grower, and is estimated to reach a mature size of 10 to 12 feet tall in the landscape. It will also be beautiful in a decorative container. ‘Lil Anne’s Jewel’ Japanese maple will benefit from some shade in hotter climates.

We are excited to offer the best Lil Anne’s Jewel available on the web!
