Paperbark Maple
Acer griseum

  • Size: 20-30’ Tall and Wide
  • Growth Habit: Oval / Rounded
  • Growth Rate: Moderate. 6-12” per year.
  • Light Requirements: Full sun to partial shade
  • Soil Requirements:  Adaptable to varied soils but prefers well-drained and moist.  Will do well in clay soils too.
