Description
This third packet of postage stamps in the Traditional Dye Plants Series introduces the pine, pomegranate, walnut, and amur maple trees.

Amur Maple Tree (Acer ginnala Maximowicz).
The amur maple tree, inhabiting riversides and wetlands throughout Korea, is a deciduous shrub. Grouped in pairs facing each other at every gnarl, each leaf is divided into three sections. The aromatic light green flowers bloom from May to July, and fruits are produced from September to October. Yellowish brown dye can be attained from the leaves and young branches of the tree.
