Acer griseum, Paperback Maple
My local good nursery has Acer griseum, but they are very thin around 7 foot high sticks with minimal branching. Like reddish toothpicks for $79.
They have a few much more developed trees for a higher price in huge very heavy pots (would need a huge hole!), but I would rather have a younger tree anyway. I'm just having trouble imagining how these delicate long toothpicks turn into thicker trunked, even multitrunked broad trees not much taller. Is this normal to start out with a thin 7 foot trunk like this with Acer griseum?
