Acer henryi 'Variegatum'

Posting this here rather than the maples forum to maybe reach a broader audience. Has anyone heard of this? Grad school has gotten in the way in terms of keeping up with the (maple) literature, but I wasn't aware such a plant existed. Does anyone have any info? It looks like I will be picking one up this fall.

Listed online by forestfarm, without description. Kind of thing they might get from Buchholz nursery, but I don't see it on their web site. If you are seeing it for sale back there, maybe it originated back there. With unknown variegated forms of maples you have to watch that it isn't an unstable seedling that somebody named and grafted without long-term observation. Some species of trees produce temporarily (or otherwise incompletely) variegated seedlings a lot, for instance Amur maple, English oak and golden raintree.
