Acer davidii - (Père David's Maple / Snakebark Maple)

 

A rare specimen tree and one of the best snakebark maples, growing to around 10-12 m (30-40 ft) in height within open ground, or 3-4 ft tall within a bonsai pot

 

Develops an attractive, spreading crown with arching branches of elegant, oval leaves, which emerge green in spring, turning amazing hues of pink, orange and yellow in autumn

 

The striking serpentine bark is a feature in itself - starting a striped red and slowly turning green and white as it ages

 

Provides all-year interest in any garden

 

Spring flowers are followed by attractive winged fruit and seeds

 

Full hardy to -15°C (5°F)

 

Please note: full germination instructions are printed on each pack
