Acer sikkimense - WWJ11853

Pot Size: 20 litre
Price: £70.00
From a collection gathered on the cool mountain pass of Trum Tron northern Vietnam while awaiting Peter Wharton, in the autumn of 2007 at 1950m. Where it formed a 7m bushy tree with 15cm long shallowly lobed elliptic leaves, which slowly transform to a dark glossy-green above again turning crimson in autumn. Still very scarce in cultivation a semi-evergreen colourful species which has semi-persistent thick-textured foliage in British gardens, where it only forms a large shrub or small tree, with young shoots and leaves emerging a brilliant red. All this graced by long dense pendant racemes of small winged seed when we found it. Best grown in a situation sheltered from freezing winds.
