A fine group of maples initially coined in 1994 to represent a collection of hybrids between Acer davidii and A. pensylvanicum. Most members develop into 20-30' specimens taking on either large shrub or small tree stature. Outstanding bark interest is a hallmark of the group with all showcasing attractive striated stems and waxy bloom. Stem color is most prominent on young stems to 3" in diameter and runs the range from scarlet to purple, orange and green. All prefer part shade exposure with even moisture yet reasonable drainage.
