Think back to your favorite street. We are willing to bet that it was lined with large, mature shade trees giving yards a beautiful and charming feel as sunlight weaved through their lush green canopies and large weaving branches.
In the fall the leaves would turn brilliant shades of yellow, red, and orange before dropping. These trees must have even looked stunning in the winter with blankets of snow covering the branches. The type of shade trees we are describing are maples and today we’re discussing one of the most popular new maple varieties, the Autumn Blaze Maple.
15 Reasons To Plant Autumn Blaze Maples
Autumn Blaze Maple Care
Since Autumn Blaze Maples are extremely low maintenance, they don’t need much TLC. However, we do have a few tips to help them flourish.
Autumn Blaze Maples will adapt to your natural soil even if it is sandy or heavy in clay, as long as it drains well. However, these maples prefer soil that’s slightly acidic. Add organic matter like peat moss to your soil in order to increase its acidity.
Rainwater usually provides enough moisture for Autumn Blaze Maples, however they will need supplemental water during times of drought.
