Acer pectinatum - GWJ9354

Pot Size: 20 litre
Price: £60.00
Description:
An exceptionally rare and highly ornamental shrubby tree, which has always been considered tender, until this collection proved to the contrary, flourishing in our exposed field from 2002 seedlings. Where they have formed conspicuously colourful multi stemmed shrubs with young wood emerging a bright red slowly ageing green with distinctive white striation (snakebark). The red emerging thick textured leaves are shallowly tri-lobed to inconspicuously 5-lobed, with the central lobe much longer, while the juvenile leaves have additional small basal lobes. From one of our seed collections from a remote corner of Sikkim at almost 3,000m, in the Lachung Valley. Easily grown in a fertile moisture retentive soil (usually chalk free) in part shade to sun, best sheltered from cold drying winds. ****
