Plant of the Week - Plant a (Maple)Tree
October 7, 2022
Trees are the Answer: Fall is a great time to plant…especially planting it forward by planting new trees!This week’s pick is a great series of hybrid maples referred to as ‘Freemanii’ maples; a hybrid cross between red and silver maples providing all the superior qualities of the red maples, with the faster growing habit of the silvers. ‘Autumn Blaze’ was one of the first to become available and was chosen Urban Tree of the Year. Since then, newer selections have become available, all of which have small but distinct differences. Look for ‘Autumn Blaze’, ‘Autumn Fantasy’, ‘Celebration’, ‘Firefall’, ‘Marmo’,‘Matador’, ‘Sienna Glen’ and more of the ‘Freemanii’ cultivars at your local nurseries and garden centers.
