Maple – Red (Acer rubrum)


In stock

SKU: 87 Categories: ,


One of the most important early-blooming trees for pollinators. An abundance of blooms, coupled with genetic diversity and local environments provides a source of nectar and pollen for four to five weeks. Honeybees build colony populations quickly on this early bloomer, especially in conjunction with willows. Red maple cultivars are prevalent as landscape trees, but some hybrids are sterile and therefore not useful to bees. Red maples are native trees with green leaves that turn red in the Fall.
