(Sugar Maple) Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Best in fertile, slightly acidic, moist soils in full sun. A deciduous native tree which will typically grow with a dense, rounded crown. This tree is a main component of the Eastern U.S. hardwood forest and is one of the trees which is most responsible for giving New England its reputation for spectacular fall color. Medium green leaves turn yellow-orange in autumn, sometimes with considerable color variations. Native Americans taught the early colonists how to tap these trees to make maple syrup which has now become a multi-billion dollar industry in the U.S. and Canada. Excellent shade tree. 'Fall Fiesta' is noted for its vigorous and rapid growth rate with an upright, rounded, symmetrical form. Leathery, dark green leaves (each to 6” long) turn excellent shades of yellow, orange and scarlet in fall. 60-75'. Z3-8.
