    Acer mandshuricum deserves to be more widely planted. It is one of my favorite species with a sober elegance that should make it desirable in any garden. It takes some time to establish itself and develop its beautiful architecture, but patience pays off at the end.

    One of the things I admire most about this tree is the light gray bark. It is very showy in winter and makes a stunning contrast to the scarlet leaves of new growth.

    Does seem difficult to establish, one reason is that it leafs out extremely early, (at least in our mild climate), so little specimens may not have the size to make it through the frost that is sure to come later. Luckily mine now seems to be doing well, and putting on fine growth. It has certainly taken a few years, though.
