A rare and tricky to propagate maple with colourful, striped bark which is a hybrid between the American Acer pensylvanicum and the Chinese Acer davidii. Acer x conspicuum 'Phoenix' has large, cool green leaves in the summer months which turn to a fantastic, fine gold colour in autumn.

The bark is a faint green/yellow in the summer and brightens to a vivid pink, yellow and orange with silver snake-like lines in winter.
