Noteworthy Characteristics  : Amur maackia is a small, deciduous tree with a broad, rounded habit.  Coppery-bronze bark exfoliates on mature trees. Karlovich Maack, a 19th century Siberian explorer, discovered the tree growing in the region of the Amur River which serves as the border between Siberia and China.  This tree would be much more popular if it had a different common name, and it were more available.
