A lovely, slow-growing, medium-sized tree, this is grown as much for its autumn colour. The bark is the colour of cinnamon, and peels away naturally in thin layers, hence this tree?s common name, paper bark. The leaves are deeply cut and maple-like, and turn brilliant shades of orange and scarlet in autumn. Plant it in full view of your windows to enjoy the bark all year round.Garden care: Add a top-dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser around the base of a recently planted tree in late spring and keep well watered. No routine pruning is necessary, but you can remove any dead, damaged or crossing branches in mid winter when the plants are fully dormant. Avoid pruning at any other time of the year as Acers tend to 'bleed' sap if cut while they are actively growing.
