'Ukigumo' or "Floating Clouds" is a beautiful cultivar. Changing from year to year but always attracting attention. 

'Ukigumo' leafs out in spring with pale green or very light pink leaves variegated with white. The effect varies from leaf to leaf, and from year to year actually. Sometimes leaves are nearly all white or pale pink. The pink fades away as summer approaches. Fall colours are yellow-orange. 

As with most variegated cultivars, too much fertilizer can adversely affect the variegation. As well as, too much hot afternoon sun. Therefore, fertilize lightly in the spring, and find a location for this tree with protection in the hottest parts of the day. I do know of folks who have this tree in full sun in cooler climates and it still performs generally, morning sun and late day sun would be the recommended starting point.

'Ukigumo' is an upright tree that can reach up to 16' tall and about 8' wide.
