Acer pensylvanicum L. 'Erythrocladum'.

Unique and rare Japanese Maple Tree by japaneseMapletopia

Acer pensylvanicum 'Erythrocladum' (Moose Maple) - A New England native, this maple has striking vertically-striped bright green and white bark that adds pink in winter and red tips in spring - very showy!  It also has clear yellow leaves in fall.  Naturally an understory tree so grows best in shade, where it will reach 15-30'.  If grown in sun it will grow extremely fast and may reach 50', but will be weaker.  Prefers sloping ground. Best in zones 3-6a and will need shade in 6b and warmer.

Acer pensylvanicum 'Erythrocladum' Beautiful red-striped bark is most noticeable in winter, when most maples look bare! An excellent specimen tree or focal point for a special landscape. The large, flag-like leaves are dark-green in summer, turning to bright gold in fall.
