Vibrant Fall Colored and Adaptable Shantung Maple

Shantung Maple, ('Acer trucatum'), is an outstanding small tree that has many qualities. Beautiful, glossy, dark green star-shaped foliage catches your eye thought the season. You'll adore the brilliant fall color that ranges from clear yellow to reddish purple.

The growth habit of this maple is round-headed, quite dense and uniform. When young, the bark can have a purplish tone, eventually turns gray-brown.

This tree is also called "Purple Blow" because of the reddish-purple color of its leaves during the spring. The color of Shantung Maple's foliage during the summer months is determined by the pH level of the soil, and the amount of sun the tree will receive!

It does well in full sun, and in general, seems to be quite adaptable. Originally from China, it has a very large native range. It tolerates heat and alkaline soils.

Shantung Maple is an excellent tree for small lawns and street tree use, and it certainly is worth planting in your landscape!
