I'm looking to expand my acer collection. So far I have Sango Kaku, Orange Dream, Red Emperor, a green Dissectum, a purple Dissectum, Shishigashira, Ukigumo, Koto no ito, Shirasawanum "Aureum" and Tsuma-gaki.

I have seen whilst driving quite a few acer trees that have a lovely peach colour and some that have creamy white leaves. These are fully opened leaves and not just young shoots. Anyone know what these varieties are please?

    I think you are after an Acer not a hosta going off the names listed and the reference to trees 🙂
    I can’t name a specific variety but suggest you look at the Ghost series of Acers as they are pale colours.

    Might be worth reposting with Acer in the question as some Acer lovers might then pick up on your query

    Oh God. :s Sorry, yes, I mean Acers. I was talking about hostas in the post before this so my brain has just carried on with that by the sounds of it.

    Moderators: Could you kindly replace Hosta with Acer on the tile and main post please? I've tried to do it myself but it doesnt allow me.

    I think it'd be easier if YOU started a new thread, rather than ask the Mods to change this one.
    I got all excited about Hostas for a moment

    Good god. This is what scrolling through 10 pages of hosta appreciation thread does to the brain.

    I'll star a new thread with correct title.
