Description

A colourful new introduction, Acer x conspicuum 'Red Flamingo' has deep red young shoots striped with white, sinuous lines once mature. The leaves emerge with attractive pink variegation in spring. As the year progresses, the leaf variegation turns to a slightly darker pink and white, which stands out well on the otherwise green leaves.

With its colourful winter bark and exciting leaves, Acer x conspicuum 'Red Flamingo' is a fantastic large shrub or eventually small branching tree with year round interest!
