Excellent, deciduous, fast growing foliage tree with large maple-like leaves, mid-green in spring and summer, turning glorious orange, red and purple in autumn. Young shoots often have corky wings and bark is grey-brown with knobbly, scaly ridges. If the bark is wounded the tree exudes a pleasant smelling gum resin which is called liquid amber or copalm balsam. In spring the tree produces upright small greenish flowers which mature to long stemmed, round, spiny fruit balls whih hang from the tree in winter and are eaten by finches and squirrels. Prefers neutral to acid soil, but is lime tolerant in a good deep soil.

TREE 6 x 3m (20 x 10ft) in 20 years, ultimate height 24 x 12m (80 x 40ft).

Pot Grown Plants

These are normally sold in small 9cm wide pots, unless a different pot size is shown (where the pot size is shown in litres). Pot grown plants can be planted at any time of the year.


Pot Grown are generally available all year.

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.
