Planting and Flowering Information
Likes Moist, well drained soil and is Fully Hardy
One of our favourite small trees for the garden. In spring its young copper foliage unfurls from the twiggy branches along with contrasting sulphur green clusters of flowers followed by winged seed heads which, as a child, we called 'helicopters' which spin as they fall.
The trifolate shaped leaves turn to green as they age until the autumn when they turn rich fiery shades of copper, orange and red.
Although visible at all times the paperbark maple has peeling cinnamon coloured bark which neatly curls and falls off. Also irresistible to pull off too!
I have one in y own garden which was planted 20 years ago and is now only 2m high.
Supplied as a mature 5 litre pot grown plant which is approximately 80cm tall.
