Acer griseum. A tree for all seasons

Acer griseum.  A tree for all seasons

Whatever the size of your garden space I think you would be hard beaten to choose a better tree for a feature than Acer griseum.  A true classic for planting as a single focal point tree in lawns or borders Acer griseum has a subtle beauty that belies its hardiness.

A tree with real winter appeal.  Attractive cinnamon peeling bark that is accentuated in the winter months when the entire tree is bare.  The leaves emerge orange coloured in the spring, turn pink / brown before turning to green for the summer and eventually deep red in the autumn.

A tree for all seasons

The patient Paperback Maple or Acer griseum is a slow growing tree that will never bustle for space from other plants. 

The bark is coppery brown, almost Cinnamon in colour and has the added quality of peeling off in attractive papery flakes.  The leaves emerge orange in the spring, age to green in the summer months and then take on fantastic autumn hues of red and orange in the autumn.  Attractive all year round, Acer griseum is a perfect choice for a feature.  

In stock at the moment we have options from 100- 125cm, multi-stems at 250-300cm and unusually we have some standard forms here too.
