Two interesting additions have been made to the Maple genus by the introduction of Acer Davidii and A. griseum, both deciduous trees, growing up to twenty-five feet high. A. Davidii is distinguished by the fact that the bark is streaked with white on a dark green ground. The toothed foliage is bronzy red when young and shining green when mature. The bark of A. griseum is brown and peels off in the fall. The toothed trifoliate leaves are rosy when young. A fine form of A. campestre, the common Maple, called Schwerini, has been introduced.
