General tree description
Acer cappadocicum subsp. lobelii is a large tree, growing up to 28 metres tall. It has ascending branches that give the tree a conical form, though this broadens with age. The bark is fawn-grey, becoming browner and shallowly furrowed in older trees. The leaves are dark green, 10 to 15cm long, palmate with wavy edges and five taper-pointed lobes. Yellow-green flowers in clusters are produced in early spring. The fruit is a double samara with two winged seeds.
