The name of this tall, shrubby Japanese maple means ?gold calico cloth,? a reference to the diversity of both leaf color and shape. Spring leaves display different intensities of red with contrasting green venation. In summer, green leaves have bronze highlights and in fall, the foliage ranges from yellow and orange to crimson. The medium size leaves have unusual forms too: each elongated lobe tapers to a narrow point and curls upward to form a rounded trough.
