Description:
Most likely originally described as a variety of A. hookeri, this form differing greatly from our Vietnamese collections, with more rounded and even less lobed decidedly deciduous leaves with long acuminate tips. An ornamental species long considered to be tender, but unlikely to be so as this collection from a cold valley in eastern Himalayas, gathered from an altitude of 2,855m. Where it only formed shrubby trees, bearing larger seed and samaras held in tight V shaped (less than 90°) pairs, in shorter clustered spikes approximately the same length as the leaves. Easily grown in a fertile moisture retentive soil in part shade to sun, best sheltered from freezing drying winds.
