You cannot walk by this tree without noticing the chestnut-brown peeling bark. Attractive year-round, this warm, rich bark makes an especially welcome contribution to our winter gardens. The dark summer green leaves change to shades of pumpkin orange and brick red on trees growing in full sun, buttery gold with an apricot flush on trees in part shade. This is a great tree for the small garden.

Paperbark maple is one of the few trees that will develop good fall color in dappled and deep shade as well as full sun. In shade the colors will be softer apricots and butter yellows. It will tolerate a wide range of soils including compacted urban sites, sand and clay. Avoid locations where water puddles and does not drain away. Very little pruning is needed to maintain a beautiful specimen; only remove poorly developed branches, dead wood or broken limbs.

A must for anyone serious about exfoliation and its ornamental attributes. Layers of copper bark peel away for interest. Fall color & great small tree!

One of the most beautiful of all small trees (Hillier); red-brown bark peels in fine strips; spectacular scarlet fall color. Sun-PSh/Med
