    Description

    Mountain maple is a tall, deciduous shrub or clumped small tree that grows 3 to 10 m tall and can spread to form dense thickets (Dirr 1998; Gleason and Cronquist 1991; van Gelderen and others 1994). In the northern part of its native range mountain maple reaches a maximum height of 6 m (Sullivan 1993). Leaves are opposite, simple, threelobed or obscurely five-lobed, coarsely and irregularly serrate, dark yellowish-green, glabrous with impressed veins (adaxial), lighter green and pubescent (abaxial), truncate to cordate at the base, and 5 to 13 cm long and wide (Dirr 1998; Gleason and Cronquist 1991; van Gelderen and others 1994).
