Acer lobellii Fthd 100-125cm (W)



This is a medium-sized deciduous tree growing to 20metres with a narrow, erect crown, one of very few trees with a naturally fastigiate form. It originates from southern Italy where it is now rare and endangered in its native habitat. The bark is greenish-grey, smooth in young trees, becoming browner and shallowly furrowed in mature trees. The shoots are green covered by a thick glaucous blue-white wax at first, this wearing off within a year but the older shoots remaining green for several years, bearing palmately-lobed, dark green leaves and pale yellow flowers.
