Flashfire Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum ‘JFS-Caddo2’)
Flashfire Sugar Maple
Flashfire® Sugar Maple Tree (Acer saccharum ‘JFS-Caddo2’) is a brilliant new member of the Red Maple Tree family! Glossy and colorful foliage in spring transforms into exceptional dark-green foliage all summer! Plus, the iconic fall color you expect from a Maple when the autumn temperatures drop, only better!
New and improved mildew resistance, plus heat and humidity tolerance, the Flashfire® is a lovely ornamental shade tree with lobed foliage, unique winged seed pods and of course that fall color everyone raves about – amplified! Bold, brilliant and early, your tree explodes into saturated hues of red, orange and yellow!
Dense foliage and compact growth make this tree a wonderful hedgerow tree for privacy when pruned smaller, or let develop to full size to shade seating areas and gardens, blocking out the hot sun and cooling everything beneath its limbs.
Maturing into a broad-reaching oval form, Flashfire® casts cooling shade over your driveway, home or garden beds! Great for front and back yard landscaping, you’ll want to site this tree where you’ll easily be able to witness its year-round beauty!
Like other Sugar Maple trees, Flashfire® does produce that syrupy, sticky sap, so once your tree is old enough – go ahead and tap it! Be careful not to prune your tree until winter so the sap doesn’t make your car or seating areas develop into a sticky situation.
Plant Flashfire® in full sun and in an open area for great air circulation, this will give you the best color. Give these roots room to grow and plant in a well-enriched environment that is also well-drained.
Get ready for bonfires, sweaters and hot apple cider by ordering a Flashfire® Sugar Maple tree for your landscape today! You won’t want to miss out on another autumn color show!
