Acer micranthum, a small deciduous tree of 6-10m in height and 15cm in diameter with gray-brown barks, commonly grows in mountainous regions. With no hairs, the young branches tinge themselves with red. The phyllotaxis is the opposite; the 5-8cm in diameter leaf blades are palmately cleft in three, and the lobes extend long in a tailway, with double serrations on the margins. Dioecious or monoecious: A. micranthum bears 20-30, about 4mm across, yellow-green flowers in 4-10cm long inflorescences. Bloom time: June-July.
