Oregon Trail Maple

General Information

This beautiful maple tree is a native of Hiawatha, KS the “City of Beautiful Maples”. In a contest spearheaded by Doug Grimm of Grimm’s Garden Center, Hiawatha citizens voted it their favorite of this unique collection of sugar maples that grow alongside the Oregon Trail.  It features gray to brownish gray bark. Long, thin, flaky scales which exfoliate at the ends, develop on the bark of mature trunks and limbs giving them a shaggy appearance. Insignificant, yellow flowers bloom in spring and give way to 2″ long samaras that mature in fall.  Brilliant red-orange fall color. This native Kansas tree has good heat and drought resistance. It has strong branch angles and sturdy limbs that resist ice damage.  It is a fast growing tree will provide a graceful addition to a street or park setting. A beautiful, large, landscape tree for areas with poor or wet soil, where other trees may not grow well.
