A Bit More

Understandably popular, this deciduous tree offers reliably stunning fall color and achieves its full 40’-50’ width and height moderately quickly. Native to the swamps of Northeastern North America, it loves plenty of water, lots of room, and full sun to partial shade. Ample water will encourage a deep root system. Perfect for parks or large lawn areas, it heralds the arrival of spring when its profuse and beautiful flower clusters appear. The seeds in the attractive samaras that follow are considered a delicacy by chipmunk, squirrel, and bird populations. Red stems contrast beautifully with the 3-6” long and wide serrated deep green leaves which deliver a blaze of red-leaved glory in the fall.
