Treevia – Red maple: the colour of love!

 

 red flowers

When you notice trees blushing in a month or two, you’ll know spring has arrived. Red maples are one of the first trees to flower in later winter and they do so with passion. Long before growing out their leaves red maples erupt with tiny flowers crowded in dense clusters. But it’s not just their flowers that are the colour of love – their seeds, leaves and uniquely long leaf stems are also crimson.

Red maples are highly adaptable trees. They can tolerate all kinds of growing conditions and thrive in wet soils often gracing shorelines of lakes and streams not to mention swamps. Keep your eyes peeled for these heralds of spring and order your very own to plant and enjoy! You can order on-line using our new order form http://orders.ltc.on.ca/treeform/tree_form.php , or just give Ewa a call at 613-394-3915 ext 252 to choose your favourite trees.
