Pink Ballerina Japanese Maple:
Pink Ballerina Japanese maple is a very rare and beautiful variegated laceleaf. Pink Ballerina was discovered at Junkers Nursery in England as a sport of Acer dissectum ‘Nigrum Select’. The base colour is a deep rich purple, with pink variegation. Good light is important to give good color, but avoid full midday sun to protect the variegated portions. The growth habit is weeping.
Many folks are asking how Pink Ballerina differs from another variegated laceleaf, Hana matoi. What I see is a stronger purple-red base to Pink Ballerina for most of the initial growing season. Hana matoi tends to show green with pink and white variegation. Both are beautiful, and we carry both at Garden Design Nursery.
Care and Planting tips for your Pink Ballerina Japanese maple:
Make sure your Pink Ballerina Japanese maple is planted with good drainage. Examples of techniques for ensuring proper drainage include planting the tree in a raised bed, planting on a slope, and creating a planting mound 4 to 6 inches above the existing grade. Pink Ballerina Japanese maples require moist, well drained soil. Amending the soil with organic material and adding an organic mulch over the planting area is also recommended.
