Acer tegmentosum 'Joe Witt'
Common Name: Manchurian Snakebark Maple Family: Aceraceae (The Maple Family)

The snakebark maples are superlative medium-sized trees with fascinating, snake-like striations to the bark. Acer 'Joe Witt' is an excellent cultivar with bold white, silver and green striations with red highlights that become more pronounced with time. Young twigs are pure white later revealing the green bark beneath. In winter the tree looks like a ghost in the landscape. Golden yellow fall colour. Very hardy. Avoid full sun which can damage the bark.
