Tatarian Maple
Russian Almond

Tatarian Maple is a small, multi-stemmed tree that features attractive red foliage in fall.

In addition to its outstanding autumn color, it is also one of the first trees to leaf out in the spring.

Tatarian Maple makes a good specimen tree for for small yards. Closely related to Amur Maple, it is slightly larger in stature.

Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets that wildlife will flock to for food and cover. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. Numerous reports suggest the nuts are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

As a low maintenance landscaping tree, this tree is quite popular. Many of our tree farm and garden center customers purchase this and grow them on.
