The intricate silver lines on the bark of Acer davidii 'Serpentine' gradually snake around the trunk as it grows creating a ghostly effect which makes this small tree a fascinating addition to a winter garden. The leaves are dark green and noticeably more narrow then those of a species Acer davidii.
