Acer griseum
The paperbark maple (Acer griseum) is a deciduous tree native to central China. It's a member of the maple family, Aceraceae, popular for its stunning, peeling cinnamon-colored bark. The paperbark maple grows to a height of 25 feet with a spread of 20 feet. Green leaves turn a beautiful reddish-orange in the fall. Small yellowish-green flowers bloom in spring, followed by clusters of winged samaras that mature in the fall. What makes this tree truly unique is its bark. Layers peel away in thin strips to reveal the smooth, cinnamon-colored bark underneath. It steals the show in winter months when contrast against a snowy landscape. A hardy tree that's easy to grow and is well-suited for a variety of garden and landscape settings. It prefers well-drained soil and partial shade, although it can tolerate full sun with adequate moisture. It is also tolerant of pollution, making it a good choice for urban landscapes. The paperbark maple is valued by gardeners and landscapers for its striking bark, attractive foliage, and compact size. It is often used as a specimen tree in smaller gardens or as a focal point in larger landscapes.
