Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
James H. Schutte
Paperbark maple is a small, oval to rounded deciduous tree native to central China. It has distinctive three-parted leaves of dark green that turn orange-red and bronze tones in fall. This tree is best known for its beautiful, peeling coppery cinnamon bark, which looks lovely year-round.
Paperbark maple does best in sites with moist, well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. The winged fruits of this maple are usually sterile, so it is not weedy. Though slow growing, this highly attractive tree is well worth the wait. It is best enjoyed in the landscape as a feature plant.
