Are you envious of the beautiful fall colors of New England? Or do you just want a shade tree that will turn heads with a blaze of color when summer turns to fall? Then the Autumn Blaze Maple is the tree for you.
Fall is a great time to plant trees. Roots grow best in cooler soil and shorter days let trees focus more energy on building a strong root network instead of growing leaves and branches.
Plus, bargains abound as nurseries begin clearing out their stock before winter hits.
Beautiful landscapes can be doomed by the wrong selection of trees and shrubs. The same characteristics that cause some species to thrive in nature can spell ruin in manicured lawns and gardens.
Many of these plants are chosen because of their rapid growth or showy foliage only to fill their hosts with regret. Some propagate by suckers, others by seed, but regardless of how they spread, they tend to disrupt landscapes with unwanted growth that’s often hard to prevent.
