A tough tree for tough climates! 

Sensation Boxlelder Maple (Acer negundo ‘Sensation’) is a pretty tree that can handle tough climates without skipping a beat.

Maple trees are easy to grow and are used all over North America. They are native selections so you know that they will do well. They thrive from Canada to Guatemala. Maples are known for the color of the fall leaves and Sensation is no exception. In the fall it unleashes a brilliant display of rich red leaves that are a classic fall garden look. The leaves come out a soft copper-red in the spring and quickly change to a refreshing green with just a hint of copper undertones for the summer.

Sensation Boxelder will quickly reach 30-35 feet. It is a great landscape tree and casts nice shade. It’s nicely sized for a garden bed or border. Where this tree really shines is in areas that have challenging climates. It hardy to zone 4 (-40 degrees and more) and it is water-wise too. Once it is established it is relatively drought tolerant.

It is super easy to care for and thrives in sun or part shade. Several lining a long drive are picture perfect in any season.

Sensation Boxelder is a great tree for your landscape. Don’t wait until we sell out. Order yours today!
