Some of the best trees with exfoliating bark are Paperbark Maple and Stewartia Pseudocamillia. In addition to the actual peeled bark clinging to the trunk, as seen above, there are often different colors exposed on the trunk and larger branches. Even better, these trees offer a three or sometimes a four season interest with their spring leafy greenness and beautiful fall color. Stewartia offers a fourth season with large, showy white flowers in late spring and early summer while most flowering trees have already put on their show. Coral Bark Maple is a type of Japanese maple with, SURPRISE, a coral colored bark which contrasts nicely against winter's white.
