griseum (paper bark) Slow growing to 25’ high, 15-20’ wide. Soft green leaves change to scarlet in fall. Becomes even more distinctive and elegant with age, as the papery sheets of old bark peel to expose cinnamon-brown new bark. This species is native to China and was first introduced via seed sent by Jesuit Missionaries.
