Introducing Acer pentaphyllum, or the Five Leaf Maple, Five-lobed Chinese Maple, and Marijuana Maple. This stunning tree/shrub is one of the rarest species in cultivation, even in its native Yalung R.valley. It boasts 5 leaflets (penta) attached to red petioles, giving it a unique and striking appearance. While its leaflets are typically five-lobed, they can sometimes range from 4 to 7. As a small-sized plant, it grows up to 8-30 feet tall, making it an excellent choice for gardens or landscaping. Forestfarm describes this species as especially handsome and noteworthy due to its rarity. Add a touch of distinction to your home and garden with the Acer pentaphyllum, a plant that combines beauty and mystery.
