This small evergreen to semi-evergreen tree is different to most other Chinese Maples in having unlobed dark green leaves. It makes a vibrant ornamental tree for the garden due to its bright purple-red bark (which darkens to grey-brown with maturity), its glossy oblong shaped leaves, its purple-white flowers and the yellow-brown fruit. New plant growth also often takes on a a reddish tinge.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Germination usually occurs within 4 to 6 weeks although some seeds may take much longer.
