In the Garden
Grown as a street tree in many parts of the world, Acer buergerianum or the Trident Maple can do well in dry soils and develops into an attractive medium-sized tree in the garden. This species is native to Korea, China and Japan and if left to grow on its own will reach 10m or more in height.
The seeds for sale are taken from parents with small leaves (less than 4cm). Grow your tree in full sun or fairly light shade in just about any soil. Resistance to pests and drought tolerance as well as its naturally attractive form keeps it low-maintenance.
