nice flowers!nice samaras!nice maple!
Lovely plant, and lovely photos!
Really interesting. Thanks alex.
Here are some complementary pics for this rare evergreen maple.
The description in Maples of the World says that leaves are 3-veined, upper surfaces brilliant green, undersides bluish green; margins remotely serrated; bases cordate; apices acuminate. Bark gray, smooth. In fact from a distance, and with the right illumination, the bark almost has a bluish tone.
Pictures are from April 2010 and the plant is in the ground in a fairly shaded area.
Gomero did your cordatum stay evergreen? Mine, in full sun, lost all leaves but is now showing new growth.
It doesn't seem fond of the sun, especially in winter. The tops of the thin branches are covered with gall, but the undersides look OK and as I said it is showing good growth.
first year in my garden :bark remain green ,leaves down in December,several prune in january for one good grown up right,good tolerate full sun but in morning..however fantastic maple!
Emery, yes my cordatum loses its leaves during the winter. This is its second year in my garden and is already flowering. The flowers are quite unique for maples and worth sharing.
In Maples of the World it is said that it can grow in zones VII and VIII, so it should be OK in my garden.
