HOT WINGS® Tatarian maple
Acer tataricum 'GarAnn' PP 15,023
Attractive sturdy tree with showy fall color. Brilliant red samaras look like flaming flowers in mid-summer. Ideal for home landscapes where a smaller tree is desired. Read more here. Tips from the pros:
- May produce seedlings which are easy to pull, if desired.
- Set your HOT WINGS® up on its own drip irrigation zone or group it with shrubs. (If you plant this tree in a spot that gets frequent irrigation, like a bluegrass lawn, you may encourage more seedlings than you'd prefer.)
- HOT WINGS® has strong branch unions, but it can experience some limb damage in snowstorms. Gently brush the snow off your tree during heavy snowstorms, particularly in the spring and fall. Trim back long branches or branches vulnerable to snow. And don't plant this tree under the eaves of a house where snow loads can slide off and damage it.
