Breeder:American Beauties Native Plants
Foliage Color:Red Shades
Fast-growing with a pleasing oval shape, this outstanding specimen shade tree features deep green, trident foliage with gray green leaf backs. Tiny red flowers emerge in early spring to the delight of early native pollinators. Foliage puts on a fiery red show you can't help but admire! Swamp red maple is one of the earliest blooming trees in the northeast. The flowers provide nectar for small bees, flies, and beetles, which in turn attract insect-eating birds such as kinglets, phoebes, pine warblers, and others.
