Cinnamon Girl™ Maple
The bark of this Paperbark Maple hybrid is rich cinnamon brown and peels in attractive flakes. Neil Young was dreaming of our tree when he sang, "I wanna live with a Cinnamon Girl" He saw the sexy bark and perky leaves and started writing his song. More vigor than a straight Paperbark Maple will result in a small to medium tree from zones 4 to 7. Excellent red fall color caught the eye of Al Fordham, the accomplished former propagator of the Arnold Arboretum. Al named the tree after his own sweet Cinnamon Girl and wife, Molly.
