'Ariadne' is a nice reticulated maple with distinctly strong serrations
along the ends of the leaf lobes. The lobes are divided more deeply
than some other reticulated maples. The serrations are large and the
veins follow them giving the appearance of sub-lobes. The result is a
unique feathery appearance.
Spring foliage ranges from cream and peach tones to rosy orange colors
when given ample sunlight on a network of greenish veins. As with other
reticulated maples, older growth will show stronger reticulation than
new growth. However, this
maple does not show the degree of reticulation that some other varieties display. Fall
colors are orange and red.
'Ariadne' sometimes shows distinct whitish striations along the bark. It has a
semi upright habit, and it should reach over 10 ft high and
