One of the most attractive of the Snake-bark Maples. Small tree with grey-green bark striped with white and coral-red young growth. Glossy, three-lobed green leaves, turning yellow, orange and red in autumn. Pendant racemes of greenish-white flowers and small pink-flushed, yellowish winged fruits later.

Any reasonable well drained soil in sun or part shade. Prune if required, by removing dead or unwanted branches in late autumn to midwinter.

From seed.
