The Tatarian Maple, Acer tataricum', is quite similar to Amur Maple, and the two species readily hybridize when grown together. Tatarian Maple grows slightly larger and is naturally more tree-like in growth habit; somewhat irregularly rounded crown.
The Tatarian Maple develops a good red coloration when maturing, and its fall color is usually yellow to reddish brown; makes a good tree for planters or patios.
The greenish-white flowers are on 2- to 3-inch upright panicles, appearing in late spring. The late summer fruit is a red winged samara, then changing to brown in fall.
This maple tolerates alkaline and compacted soils and can be grown as a tree or large multi-stemmed shrub. It is best to prune this Tatarian Maple to ensure that it develops a structurally stable branching pattern.
With its excellent small tree form and good foliage quality, this Tatarian Maple should have a special spot in a planter or small space in any yard!
