Acer griseum
Paperbark Maple
The fruits of all maples are termed samaras, being paired seeds that are joined together until abscission, each with an elongated wing that causes the separated seed to whirl to the ground as a method of dispersal. Paperbark Maple rarely has heavy fruit set, probably due to poor cross-pollination resulting from the narrow genetic base that has been brought from the Orient.
