Paperbark Maple (Acer griseum)

Paperbark Maple (Acer griseum) (Acer griseum (Paper-bark maple))

Paperbark maple is beautiful even as a small tree. I love having plants with year-round interest.

I agree, you have to have at least one tree in your garden that is good to stroke!

I can't decide which I like better, this or the Japanese maple.

Now I am confused, as I also bought Acer griseum in arboretum, but mine does not have that typical maple shape of leaves, isnĀ“t so colourful during the year, but will have decorative bark in adulthood, I was told.
I have also Acer japonicum Aconitifolium and that is lovely tree - by shape and changing colours of its leaves.
But did you try Amelanchier? That is festival of colours during the whole year. It is beautiful as solitary tree.
