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.

The Russian Mountain Ash is a stunning ornamental tree with the perfect pop of colour. It bears white flowers in the spring and gorgeous orange berries in the fall. Birds enjoy the berries that persist into the winter. It grows tall and can thrive in an urban setting making this an attractive ornamental tree for your landscaping project.
