Acer griseum in the island bed in the Asian Collections

This is the only plant that I really intended to have in my garden and, after 25 years don't have. There just isn't a place. The afternoon sun  inflamed the exfoliated curls of reddish bark this afternoon. I remember when the "winter garden" was planted at Brookside Gardens. Acer g. was among the original plantings along with Chimonanthus praecox, a blue-caned Rubus, and I don't remember what else.
