Tree identificagtion

Hi I've just picked up the the name maps of Tortworth Arboretum and some of them are written in shorthand, I wondered if anyone knows what Acer Insigna.  is short for? I cant find it on google which seems odd?


Thanks for any help


  • Possibly a typo or misspelling?  Have a look through the Acer name wiki and see if anything comes close:



    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I  think it should be Acer Insigne

    Have a look in RHS Plant finder. google will probably throw up an Acer computerimage

    for google, just put -computer after the search and you'll not get any computers

    eg acer -computer
    Of course you'll still get PC's and laptops, so you can end up with a long search, but it'll work

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • Thank you very much, Acer Insigne is promising, i'll pencil that into the list I'm copying with a question mark, if the trees at the arboretum I'll have to wait until it gets some leaves then look again at it.

    Thanks again
