Info

With its red new stem growth and leaf petioles, it is more ornamental and easily distinguished from common snake-bark species such as A. davidii, A. pensylvanicum or A. rufinerve. Of modest size and easy to grow, it merits a spot in the garden where it behaves like a chameleon in its seasonally changing charm.

According to Michael Dirr, this is the most heat tolerant of all the Snake-bark Maples. A. capillipes grows 25-30' tall and bears showy 4-6" pendulous racemes of samoras that turn shades of red in the fall. Autumn foliage color is usually in shades of red although occasionally yellow tones appear. The handsome greenish white striping of the bark adds winter interest.
