Available Autumn/Winter 2019 Native to Eastern North America and known for its fantastic autumn colour, Acer saccharum is unusual in the United Kingdom and commonly called the 'Sugar Maple'. The sap contains a large proportion of sugar and is one of the major sources of maple syrup.
The leaves are bright green in spring / summer, turning delightful shades of orange-gold, scarlet and crimson in a good crisp autumn before falling. Acer saccharum is a sensational garden or street tree for autumn colour!
Although a handsome tree once established, we find that Acer saccharum is slow growing in the short term and not for instant gratification.
