Description
An extraordinary deciduous tree with superb ornamental value! Acer griseum is a slow growing tree with a beautiful spreading habit, ultimately growing to a medium sized specimen. Its winning feature is the cinnamon coloured bark which slowly peels to create a shaggy appearance, giving rise to its common name of Paper Bark Maple. The deeply cut, 3 lobed leaves are greenish-yellow turning to brilliant scarlet in autumn. Acer griseum is often grown as a stand-alone specimen tree in UK gardens. Plant it in a prominent spot where it’s intriguing bark can be appreciated all year round. Height and spread: 10m (30’).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow acer trees in any moist, fertile, well drained soil in sun or dappled shade, with shelter from strong winds which can scorch the finely cut leaves.
More Info
Water regularly throughout the growing season until acer trees are well established. Protect plants from strong winds. Acers require little pruning other than to maintain their shape. Lightly trim stems if necessary from late autumn to midwinter.
