Its fall color features more oranges and reds than other sugar maples. This selection also boasts strong winter hardiness, with a trunk that’s resistant to sunscald and frost cracks, conditions that can occur during cold winters. Give trees a sunny spot in moist, well-drained soil that’s slightly acidic. Trees grow 50 to 75 feet tall and up to 50 feet wide. Hardy in Zones 3-7.
