Perhaps finest, most beautiful of all small trees. Leaves are trifoliate, beautifully collored with brilliant splashes or gold and red for autum. The bark splits and peels to reveal a coppery smooth under surface. Rather slow growing and becomes elegant with age. Native to China. Stunning huge tree collected as seed by Ernest Wilson at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston, the main trunk of which is 2-3' through. Wow!

With a dignified, rounded form, dramatically flaking mahogany-colored bark that peels to expose the cinnamon hues beneath, and rich green trifoliate leaves that blaze to a brilliant red each fall, China's Paperbark Maple is a splendid specimen for just about any place in your garden. This Maple requires well drained soil, and will tolerate sun, shade or wind, but never drought. Unparalleled for its winter beauty, Acer griseum grows slowly to its full size. Large Band.

Among the rich variety of cultivated maples, this one is highly esteemed for its peeling tissue-thin coppery bark. Leaves turn scarlet and orange in fall. Still not common in the trade; easily grown on to larger size despite its propagation difficulty.

Info

A garden gem. One of the finest trees in cultivation. Rare because it is difficult to propagate, and it is a slow growing juvenile. Grows to 6-8' in ten years 15-30' or more over a long period time. Trifoliate leaves emerge red briefly before turning to a good green. Fall colors are predominately reds, with some orange-red and black-red colors. The bark is a rich reddish-brown in color and exfoliates to reveal a cinnamon colored bark beneath. This creates a superior effect, especially when trees are dormant. Trees mature at 25 - 30' tall. Awards: Award of Merit & Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society, Gold Medal from Pennsylvania Horticulural Society. Recommended by: Ohio Plant Selection Committee, & the United States National Arboretum.
