Big Tooth Maple

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.

Big Tooth Maple is a versatile, cold hardy maple variety that is ideal for small landscapes. It has high ornamental appeal due to its striking red-gold autumn foliage and multi-stemmed form.

Big Tooth Maple is highly deer resistant and drought tolerant as well. Keep in mind the size and form of this tree can vary due to climate, moisture, and growing conditions. In drier spots, you'll notice Big Tooth Maple is more shrub like. In moist, full sun conditions, this tree can grow to be up to 50 ft tall. Plan your site accordingly.
