Tree Series #20

A magnificent small garden tree for year round interest its most prominent feature is its tactile, silky, polished bark. The smooth, mahogany bark peels in translucent cinnamon and honey coloured sheets to reveal a fresh new hue of bronze-red gloss beneath. Caught in autumn sunlight this tree almost glows. This multi-stemmed one is a highly  prized specimen.

Common Name: Tibetan cherry tree, birch bark cherry, birchbark cherry, paperbark cherry

    I thought I was going doolally or blind as I couldn’t see the name of the tree in the header … then I saw it in the tags.
    Nice. Never seen this before.
