Discuss Acer griseum (Paperbark maple) with other Shoot members.
Hi I would really like to plant an Acer griseum but the location would be 15ft from rear of house and only 7 ft from neighbours rear outhouse. Is this a problem? If so, any recommendations for good screening shrub or small tree would be appreciated. Thanks
How would you go about propagating Acer griseum from seed? Any tips?
