Acer griseum

Acer griseum provides seasonal interest in the Winter Garden.
The genus Acer numbers many garden-worthy species, several of which are grown for their attractive bark. Acer griseum, or the paperbark maple, is one such species, displaying peeling, russet bark which provides winter interest, and which comes into prominence on a bright, sunny day. In summer it will produce pendent, yellow flowers which are followed by winged, downy fruits. It will further reward in autumn when the foliage takes on russet hues. As such, it is a good selection for the small garden, offering year-round interest.
It was introduced to our gardens from central China by the renowned plant hunter Ernest Wilson in the early 1900's.
