Acer pseudosieboldianum

Acer pseudosieboldianum - Korean maple

Korean maple is a beautiful small tree or shrub which closely resembles the Japanese species Siebold’s maple (A. sieboldianum). Both have rather small, round, attractively lobed leaves and a slender layered habit. Since both species are very variable in form, distinguishing one from the other outside their natural range is difficult, and at Mustila the Korean species long had the name-tag Siebold’s maple. One good distinguishing feature is the colour of the flowers, red in Korean and yellow-green in Siebold’s maple.
