Acer stachyophyllum W/O-8014 Back in stock 2023
The plants we offer have been grown by us from seed collected by August Wu and Bjørnar Olsen in Xianggelila, Tianchi Lake, Yunnan, China at 3650 metres (previously sold under the name Acer cf. sikkimense). A colourful single or multi-stemmed, hardy species of Acer with white pubescent and dramatic, red spring foliage, red petioles, yellow-brown bark and elongated, three lobed, toothed leaves, which turn a beautiful yellow in autumn. The stems also turn a very attractive reddish-orange colour through the winter months. Maximum height 15 metres. Part shade in moisture retentive, well-drained soil in a sheltered position.
This collection differs from Acer stachyophyllum W/O-8015 in that W/O-8014 has strongly lobed leaves and the autumn colouration is yellow - which means this could possibly be Acer stachyophyllum subsp. betulifolium. W/O-8015 has less lobed leaves and the autumn colouration is orange and red.
