Description: Spectacular when seen in the wild as a large ancient tree, as we have in the mountains of Taiwan, in its full autumn glory. A rare Taiwanese endemic, a slow growing species more often seen as a small upright tree to 4-5m, with deeply bronzed young foliage overlaid with silvery-grey venation (the effect of the pubescents) ageing to rich scarlet deeply seven-lobed leaves by the autumn. Best grown in a moisture retentive soil which is freely drained, in part shade to sun with shelter from strong drying winds. From seed gathered for us by The Taiwan National Museum of Natural Science, before we arrived in late 2015, from Nanhushan NP, Taichung Co. at 1950m.
