    Great picture. You certainly have an eye for composition.
    What is the hardiness ?

    Beverly sent along a note to me mentioning that the January 2006 issue of The Garden has an article on snake bark maples. Unfortunately, it’s not freely available online.

    I recently acquired a small Snakebark Maple at a local plant sale and was pleased with how it grew over the past year and I loved it’s fall colours. I would like to read more of the article by Douglas Justice but the link to the .pdf doesn’t work. In fact the Davidsonia website seems to be down or missing.

    Claire, I’ll investigate. For the time being, visit here to see the PDF.
    I think the problem is solved – I can access it from a number of different IP addresses and computers.

    Acer tegmentosum, at least in a type familiar in western collections is admired for retaining the wax better than most (if not all) other Macrantha maples. Fairly old specimens are quite bloomy right down to the ground.

    beautiful bark – this almost looks like an airy, open woven textile. Great photo, Daniel!

    I grew two from seeds supplied from chiltern seeds
    They are now ten years old and surviving very well against a west facing wall in the SE of England. So far they have grown the strongest of all the assorted maple seeds that I tried

    do you know where i can source 2 of these for a Chicago garden? Prefer 3-4″ trunk, if possible.
