Taxonomy and Etymology

Family: Sapindaceae, soapberry family, a family of flowering trees, lianas, and herbaceous plants that occur in many temperate and tropical regions.

Genus: Acer, ācer (Latin, adjective), meaning 'sharp', in reference to the pointed leaves. Commonly known as maple, a genus of various trees and shrubs.

Species: Acer davidii, davidii (Latinised), in reference to the supposed discoverer, Armand David (1826 - 1900). The species was originally discovered by a Chinese person, but unfortunately their name has been lost to history. Armand David took credit for this species' discovery when he was a missionary in Central China.

The grade size is the size of the bag/pot the tree is in. This is measured in either litres or pints per bag.

The height is the overall height of the tree from the top of the pot/bag (bottom of the trunk) to the top of the tree. Some grades have height ranges as the heights of the individual trees vary.

The standard height is the height of the clear trunk from the bottom of the trunk to the graft or the first branch (if it is not grafted).

Grades that are in production are not yet ready for sale. You can place a pre-order for a 50% deposit and we will hold the stock until it is ready. Enquire if interested.

Prices subject to change without notice. Actual stock quantity may differ. Every care is taken to accurately record heights but due to slightly different growth rates and other natural variables that can occur within and to a species, variety, or cultivar, the actual height of the final product may differ from what is stated.
