acer saccharum ‘bailsta’

Fall Fiesta Sugar Maple

acer saccharum - fall fiesta sugar maple
Fall Fiesta sugar maples are slow growers maturing into a fine, symmetrical shape. Their fall color is excellent with mixes of yellow, red, and orange. They are well suited as specimen and focal point trees. They do best in full sun with a minimum light requirement of four to 6 hours sun.

It is important to plant them in a well drained deep mix soil. They do not like compacted soil.

Height: 40′ – 50′

Width: 30′ – 40′

Exposure: Full sun.

Fruit / Flower: Samaras.

Fall Color: Yellow-Red-orange.

Water: Keep well watered while young to establish a strong root system – a couple of good soakings per week.

Fertilizer: Use a nitrogen rich fertilizer in spring once established. While it is being established it’s safer to use a slow release fertilizer to prevent young tender root burn. Mix the fertilizer into the soil.

Pruning: Prune in late winter or early spring if required. Regular pruning keeps these trees in shape and can prevent major limb breakage.

Do not tap the tree for sap once the buds appear.
