Paperbark Maple

(Acer griseum)

A small ornamental tree with a stately habit, paperbark maple can be grown as a multi-trunked or low-branched specimen that fits into many home gardens. “One of this tree’s main attributes is its beautiful exfoliating cinnamon to reddish-brown bark that develops on young trees, providing a focal point in the winter landscape,” says Dr. Andrew Bell, curator of woody plants.
