This beautiful and unusual snakebark maple has excellent cream and pink variegated foliage that is not as prone to scorch as some variegated maples.

Acer x conspicuum 'Silver Cardinal' has a delightful 'snaking' effect on the trunk, with well defined silver lines that contrast vividly with the glossy pink bark. The young leaves appear as creamy pink and these darken to green and white as they age.

Acer x conspicuum 'Silver Cardinal' is particularly suitable to areas in dappled light under trees and in this sort of position can really brighten up a dark area of the garden.
