Interesting Notes about Manchurian Maple:
This is a stunning and unique maple not commonly available in the horticulture industry mainly due to the difficulties in propagation. The seed has a very thick coating that takes a long time, years in fact, to germinate. The open form of the tree and the fact that it is not excessively large allows for its use as a shade tree in smaller landscapes.
