Pink Leaves

These beautiful leaves are one of my favourites for this autumn. They are golden yellow on the inside, and the backside is pink. Pink and gold are one of my favourite combinations lately. I think it’s some kind of maple. I know that there are a lot of people who know about botany here, can you tell me what leaves they are exactly?

  1. Was reading up on pink leaves and found this…There are so many varieties of maple and their color range is so varied that you are bound to find pink leaves scattered among the traditional gold and orange. Temperature has a lot to do with the exact color palette that a tree achieves. Some of the variegated maples produce spectacular fall color with pink tinges. Silver Cardinal gets a yellow and pink leaf, Flamingo turns green and white with a tinge of pink and Butterfly turns a rosy pink in fall.

  2. As a French Canadian born and raised I am at a loss to distinguish these leaves. They certainly could be from a maple tree but I am not quite sure. Get Rex Trulove to check it out. I am sure he will know… The fact remains this picture is very beautiful…
