Description

This North American native can grow up to about 25 feet in height with a spread of 20 feet. It is another "snakebark" maple and has green and white striped bark. As the tree matures, these marking may fade. The foliage resembles a goosefoot in shape. It emerges with pink tinges in the spring and matures to a deeper green in summer. It turns bright yellow in the fall. It can tolerate quite a bit of shade and can be used as an understory tree.
