Plant Common Name
Joe Witt Striped Maple, Manchurian Striped Maple
Manchurian striped maple is a small, spreading, deciduous tree with green, white-striped branches. Its cultivar 'Joe Witt' was selected for its especially heavy striping, which provides year-round ornament. This selection also features large, blunt-lobed leaves which turn yellow in fall.
More tolerant of sun than most stripebark maples, and accepting of any soil that's not wet, dry, or alkaline, it makes an excellent specimen tree for eastern or northern exposures, if protected from afternoon sun.
