Product details

Acer griseum is a fairly small tree, but a magnificent one! Originally from China and was introduced by Ernest Wilson in 1901.

From an early age the bark peels to reveal cinnamon coloured under-bark. The paperbark maple is a truly stunning specimen, it has beautiful trifoliate leaves that have attractive reddish tints in the autumn.

This maple does well in sun or partial shade and appreciates a sheltered position.

Acer griseum does best in moist well drained soil and is not drought tolerant. Nutrient rich wet soil can inhibit autumn colour.

A small growing tip - this lovely tree will generally frost out over winter giving the tree a very rounded habit.

Mature height: 3-7m

Mature spread: 4-5m
