Our Mailorder website is available to browse through 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year! We apologise that we can only supply customers in the UK other than Northern Ireland. Unfortunately, it is still not possible to supply plants to the EU, thanks to BREXIT reclassifying the UK as a third country.

(Aceraceae)
Acer sikkimense  BSWJ11689

Description

Still very scarce in cultivation a semi-evergreen colourful species which has semi-persistent thick-textured foliage in British gardens, where it only forms a large shrub or small tree, with young shoots and leaves emerging a brilliant red. Forming sizeable trees in the wild with 15cm long shallowly lobed elliptic leaves, which slowly transform to a dark glossy-green above again turning crimson in autumn. All this graced by long dense pendant racemes of small winged seed when we found it, in the most northerly area of Vietnam close to the Chinese border. Best grown in a situation sheltered from freezing winds.
