Acer griseum - The Paperbark Maple Chinese Paperbark Maple

Zones 4-8

The Paperbark maple leafs out in the early spring with light green leaves that heavily divided with a compound trifoliate leaf, a unique characteristic for this maple. The primary characteristic that makes this Chinese Paperbark maple simply amazing is its heavy orange-red to cinnamon exfoliating bark. This bark provides year round interest in the garden from contrast in the spring to stealing the show in the winter garden. The maple species is so amazing that it was given the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit.
Due to its naturally harsh environments, Acer griseum is extremely hardy and drought resistant, often able to handle that southern exposure spot in your yard even in the deep south. While Acer griseum is slow to get started, as it gets more established, it can grow about a foot a year eventually reaching 35-40 ft at maturity. Fall colors are outstanding and intense colors of bright red. This is a gorgeous tree that is sure to never disappoint you in your garden.

1 gallon trees were potted up from large liners last fall and may not have completely filled out their containers.
