Chinese Evergreen Maple (Acer Oblongum) 50 seeds (#736)

This cousin to the trident maple was first noted on an expedition to the Himalayan Mountains in 1824. This rare Chinese Evergreen maple has since been noted that it ranges across western China across with diverse climates. It has long leathery and glossy leaves that are beautiful and stand out from other trees from a distance. Because of this distinctive difference, natively in China it is known as the Flying Moth maple.
Acer oblongum is vigorous and thives in the South. This maple is semi-green, eventually turning to bright red to maroon before losing it's leaves in late fall to early winter.
In 20 years this maple can reach up to 9 m (30') in height.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Start the cold stratification process one month before the beginning of spring.
2. Place the seeds in a glass bowl and cover with room temperature water. Allow the seeds to soak for a minimum of 24 hours but no longer than 48 hours.
3. Hold a handful of sterile peat planting medium under a running faucet until the peat is soaked. Squeeze most of the water out of the peat, leaving it moist but not soggy. Place the moist peat into a zip-lock plastic bag.
4. Remove the seeds from the bowl of water and rinse them off under clean running water. Place up to three seeds into the plastic bag containing the peat. Use more peat and plastic bags if you want to germinate more than three seeds.
5. Push the seeds into the peat and seal the plastic bag. Shake the bag to distribute the peat so that it covers the seeds completely. The seeds must be buried in the moist peat in order to germinate.
6. Place the sealed bag in the bottom of the refrigerator. This will serve as the cold stratification. The seeds need to be kept at +2-+8C (34-46F) for a minimum of 35 days, but not longer than 90 days.
7. Open the plastic bag periodically to make sure the peat is still moist. Add water as needed to restore the moisture.
8. Check the weather forecast after 35 days. You can plant the seeds outdoors if all danger of frost has passed. You can wait up to 55 more days, if there is still a possibility of frost and plant the seeds as late as early summer.
9. Plant the seeds by removing them from the peat and rinsing them with clean water. Bury the seeds 10 mm (2/4") deep into the soil, ensuring that the seeds are covered. Keep the soil moist until the seeds sprout.
7. Open the plastic bag periodically to make sure the peat is still moist. Add water as needed to restore the moisture.
8. Check the weather forecast after 35 days. You can plant the seeds outdoors if all danger of frost has passed. You can wait up to 55 more days, if there is still a possibility of frost and plant the seeds as late as early summer.
