Common Name: Snake-bark maple

The snake-bark maple is a beautiful tree that is perfect for smaller gardens. It certainly earns its keep, thanks to its green bark streaked with white that remains attractive all year. In autumn, its distinctively-shaped three-pointed leaves turn bright red before falling. The branches are naturally arching, giving the tree an elegant, spreading shape. Fully hardy, trees require sunny or semi-shaded sites with fertile and moist, but well-drained soil. They will benefit from a top dressing of fertiliser around the base of the plant in spring.
