Multicolored maples either exhibit splotchy variegation or significant color changes throughout the seasons.
Some Japanese maples are difficult to categorize as a particular color. With such an array of colors throughout the year, these incredible varieties are considered multicolored. The varieties listed here include those with pink or orange leaves as well as those with variegation or reticulation. Reticulated maples have leaves with distinctly-colored leaf veins.
