I first saw this rare and beautiful tree in June 2006 at Glendoick garden near Perth in Scotland. The unusual pale flaking bark and large upright flower spikes made it stand out as something very special. There was no name tag on it, but I did manage to pin it down to a form of A. caudatum. Mrs Heather Shearer has kindly revisited and taken these photos for me, which I thought Maple enthusiasts would like to share. The tree now has a tag :- Acer caudatum Georgei.
