Tatarian Maple
no image

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.

Used to growing in the shadows of the damp forest, White Maple (aka Mountain Maple) is a great fit for shady and wet areas, such as beneath larger trees. Unlike most of its cousins, the White Maple is a shrub instead of a tree. It's still a maple, however, with sap that can be made into Maple syrup to prove it!

In May and June, the classic shapes of Maple leaves are joined by clusters of green and yellow flowers. Soon after, red samaras (aka helicopter seeds or whirligigs) appear. This distinctive appearance makes White Maple an excellent choice for giving urban yards a unique (and patriotic) look.
