Information about Acer triflorum

Acer triflorum, commonly known as three-flowered maple or roughbark maple, is a species of maple tree native to eastern Asia, specifically China, Korea, and Japan. It is a deciduous tree that can grow up to 20 meters tall, with a trunk diameter of up to 50 cm. The tree has a distinctive rough, gray-brown bark that peels in thin flakes or plates.

The leaves of Acer triflorum are three-lobed, with a dark green color in the summer and a beautiful golden-yellow color in the fall. In the spring, the tree produces clusters of small yellow-green flowers that give way to paired samaras, which are winged fruits that contain the tree's seeds.

Acer triflorum is a popular ornamental tree in gardens and parks, valued for its attractive bark and autumn foliage. It prefers well-drained soils and full sun to partial shade, and is hardy in USDA zones 5-8. The tree is relatively low-maintenance and does not require frequent pruning, although it should be regularly watered in dry periods.
