Butternut
Autumn Blaze Maple

Butternut is one of the few walnut varieties native to Canada. The nuts are sought after for their mild, sweet, and oily taste. Ensure this tree is planted in full sun and well-drained soil for best results.

Butternut is self-fertile but it has better yields when planted near other butternuts. It can survive in zone 2, but reliably produces nuts in zone 3.

Autumn Blaze Maple is a striking maple variety. It is a hybrid between Silver and Red Maple with the preferred qualities of each: the fast growing nature of Silver Maple combined with the brilliant fall color and strength of Red Maple.

Autumn Blaze Maple even provides winter interest with its attractive, upright, oval shaped form. Ideally suited as a shade or accent tree, this maple variety will be your new favorite tree.
