Native to Eastern China and korea, this pretty little maple was introduced in 1890.
Acer buergerianum forms an oval to rounded crown at maturity and is well suited to streets or gardens.
The new spring foliage of the Trident Maple emerges a rich bronze colour before hardening to a glossy dark green by summer.
Greenish yellow flowers are borne in March and maturing trunks flake to brown/orange colours to provide a patchwork of winter interest.
The autumn colours of this beautiful maple can be variable, but are seldom disappointing, with leaves turning yellow through to red before falling.
Acer buergerianum is considered a slow to medium grower and is fully hardy down to -25 Celsius.
Recent arborist opinion coming out of the USA place this as a highly prized urban tree due to its durability and seasonal interest.
