A spectacular new addition for smaller home landscapes, this is a smaller accent tree that features blazing red hot seeds in late summer and fiery fall colors; more tolerant of drought and alkaline conditions than the otherwise similar Amur maple
Hot Wings Tatarian Maple is primarily grown for its highly ornamental fruit. It features abundant showy cherry red samaras in late summer. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The lobed leaves turn outstanding shades of yellow, orange and red in the fall. The flowers are not ornamentally significant.
Hot Wings Tatarian Maple is a deciduous tree with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition. This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and should only be pruned in summer after the leaves have fully developed, as it may 'bleed' sap if pruned in late winter or early spring. It has no significant negative characteristics.
Hot Wings Tatarian Maple is recommended for the following landscape applications;
- Mass Planting
This tree does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for xeriscaping or the moisture-conserving landscape. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
