Acer henryi appears to look much like the closely related Acer cissifolium. Leaf margins are less toothed, however, and the foliage seems more hairy and flatter in tone. Fall hues are vivid, however, and the tree (according to pictures in my references) seems to ultimately grow larger than many of the other trifoliate maples.

With its tri-foliate leaves that emerge with a reddish hue, this tree is quite beautiful. There is amost an exotic look to this plant. This opinion comes from seedlings that I am growing for my nursery crop, so I am looking forward to seeing how this maple looks as it gets bigger.

Now a couple of years since the above description, this tree continues its look of excellence. Young wood has an almost 'bamboo' look to it before the bark starts developing on the older wood. It takes the best (worst) of the heat, humidity, and cold here. I would say that the above hardiness zone of 6-9 is quite accurate. This will be a lovely small maple for the landscape and I will soon introduce it to the Columbia, SC market.
