Vine maple grow to 12'x12' but easily adapted to espalier or container. It is prized for its graceful habit & fall color, a wonderful addition to a woodland garden & a nice alternative to Japanese maple. Lovely planted with Redwood Sorrel & native ferns. In shade it has more of a vine-like habit, climbing its neighbors. Vine maple is a cool plant that does best in moist, cool, part-shade. Native to California and is also found outside of California, but is confined to western North America. Birds will like the seeds and dense foliage as a spot to rest. Several native groups used it as an aphrodisiac, the Chihalis people used the wood for various tools, and the Makah used the inner bark for basketry. Found in streambanks. Communitites located in Mixed Evergreen Forest, Redwood Forest, Yellow Pine Forest, wetland-riparian Between 0 and 5000 feet.
