This small sycamore maple tree has perhaps the most exotic leaf colours of any maple. The new leaves emerge orange-green to yellow-green in spring with bronze tints, but change very quickly to a creamy-beige with dark green marbling. By the summer the leaves become a creamy-white colour, accented with green speckles and splashed with pink shades, and solid pink / purple undersides.
Eskimo Sunset is also (and perhaps more accurately) known as Esk Sunset - after the Esk Valley on the North island of New Zealand where it was discovered. It belongs to the maple species Acer pseudoplatanus, commonly known as sycamores.
