Acer griseum

Known for its peeling, paper thin, coppery bark.

Common Name: Paperbark Maple, Chinese Paperbark Maple

Paperbark Maple gets its name from the distinctive peeling bark which persists throughout most of the year. Paperbark Maple is also surprisingly easy to grow long term in containers or planters, and makes an excellent patio plant. It is also extensively used for bonsai because its lacey bark is prominent even on small trees and because its leaves are smaller than most other maples. Striking cinnamon-brown exfoliating bark. Soft green leaves change to scarlet in fall. Growth Rate slow.
