(Field Maple, Hedge Maple)

Tolerant of shearing, pollarding and hard pruning, hedge maple is a densely branched deciduous tree with excellent heat and drought tolerance. Historically, this slow-growing tree has been used to create large hedgerows along the roadways in its native Europe.

In early spring, small clusters of bright yellow-green flowers appear and develop into pretty dangling groups of samaras, or winged seeds to turn from light green to tan with a slight pink blush. The gently lobed, dark green leaves often...

(Dwarf Hedge Maple)

Hedge maple is a small and adaptable deciduous tree from Europe, western Asia, and northern Africa. The cultivar 'Nanum' forms a globular shrub of about a third the typical height, and its three-lobed leaves are smaller and paler. The leaves often have red-tinted margins in spring. The foliage turns an attractive golden yellow in autumn, before changing finally to brown. It sometimes persists on the stem into winter. The bright yellow-green flowers are sparsely if at all produced and result in few...

(Hornbeam Maple)

Bearing leaves that resemble those of a hornbeam, this small deciduous tree from Japan is among the most refined and unusual maples. Sinuous smooth-barked dark gray branches with reddish twigs bear narrowly oval, toothed leaves with numerous pairs of lateral veins. The leaves turn gold or bronze-yellow in fall, then to brown, often persisting through much of winter. This dense, rounded tree bears chains of small greenish flowers in spring, followed by winged green fruits that mature to brown.

(Rock Maple, Rocky Mountain Maple)

Native to rocky slopes and moist ravines through much of western North America, this small, hardy, relatively drought tolerant maple makes a good choice for low-maintenance landscapes within its native range. An upright, typically multistemmed shrub or small tree, it has three- to five-lobed, shiny, medium-green leaves that sometimes are divided into three leaflets. Fall color is a yellow to orange. Although rather sparsely branched and rangy in shady sites, it forms a much denser plant in partial...

The arching habit and gray bark are attractive throughout the year.

For most effective growth this maple prefers a semi-moist acidic soil and part shade. It is very versatile, working well as a garden specimen, in containers, or for bonsai. The cascading...

Tatarian maple is a small, bushy, deciduous tree that originates from eastern Europe and Asia. Its irregularly lobed green leaves turn colorful shades of red, yellow and orange in fall and in spring its branches bear clusters...
