Acer griseum-A Handsome All Season Tree
Acer griseum (Paperbark Maple) has many attributes that make it a must for every garden. It is a slow growing tree of small stature that fits in well next to a patio or driveway. It is attractive year round. The most notable feature is the cinnamon-color exfoliating bark. Contrasting against a new fallen snow, this rich warm bark is a welcome contribution to a winter garden.
