Sugar Maple trees have long been considered the king of shade trees due to their lovely shape, excellent fall color, versatility in many different soil types, very strong wood / branching and production of sap used to make maple syrup. Apollo Sugar Maple offers the same great features in a more compact size that is a better fit for modest sized areas in the landscape.
Apollo Sugar Maple has a fantastic mix of yellow, orange and red fall color and matures to a height of about 30 feet tall and width of only ten feet! Standard sugar maples grow to 50′-60′ tall and 40′-50′ wide by comparison.
As with all sugar maple varieties, plant Apollo Sugar Maple in properly drained soil. Avoid wet spots as well as sandy soils. Apollo Sugar Maple can grow nicely in as little as 1/4 day of direct sun, as well as sunnier areas, and even full sun all day long!
The Apollo Sugar Maples are in their full glory right now, with a lovely mix of yellow, gold, orange and red. Stop in and see for yourself how very nice Apollo Sugar Maple can be for those smaller areas in your landscape!
