Acer triflorum at the entrance to China Valley

Beautiful fall color plus exfoliating bark in a small to medium sized tree. Very nice. This maple still doesn't have much of a presence in the trade, but it is coming along. I first saw it at Brookside Gardens twenty odd years ago. It is in the trifoliate group of maples which puts it in the elevated company of Acer griseum and henryi.
