Founded in 2007 by Gary Epstein in Ft. Collins, CO this hybrid of the Tatarian Maple has an amazing shape with beautiful red samaras that resemble hot wings. Bright samaras juxtaposed with brightly green leaves makes this tree extremely showy even in summer. It's a spectacular new addition to smaller home landscapes. Tolerant of poor alkaline soils and cold winters, this tree is also less prone to develop iron chlorosis as it's much more adaptable to alkaline soils. Fall color varies in shades of red.
