Silver Maple Seedlings will make an excellent shade tree for you to enjoy.
The aptly named silver maple is beloved for the silvery undersides of its leaves that ripple and gleam when the wind blows, and the silver hues of its bark when it’s young. Even the flowers are silver. But what gardeners love about this tree is that it grows incredibly fast. The silver maple, which can grow to 50 to 80 feet with a 35 to 50-foot spread when it's full grown, grows over two feet per year.
Besides its beauty and rapid growth, the silver maple is excellent as a shade tree and is often found in parks, gardens and along sidewalks for that purpose. It has an extensive root system and should be planted in an area where its roots can spread out without interfering with septic tanks, underground plumbing or utility lines. It prefers deep, fertile, moist soil with an acid pH.
A sturdy tree, the silver maple can stand some flooding and some drought.
The red, gold and silver flowers open in earliest spring before the leaves. The fruit called samaras have twisted wide-spread wings. At 3 inches long, the silver maple’s Samaras is the largest of any North American maple. The leaves not only have beautiful, silvery undersides in the growing season but turn red and mustard yellow in the fall. They are 3 to 6 inches long, deeply lobed and deeply cut and have hairs along the veins. Though the most common silver maple has a vase-shaped habit, one type of silver maple has graceful, weeping branches.
The silver maple prefers full sun to part shade, though at maturity it may be one of the tallest trees in the neighborhood. It will grow to be 50 to 70 feet high when fully developed. It will also grow to around 3 feet each year. This tree will grow well in full sunlight and partially shaded areas. This tree also adapts well to various soil conditions and is very drought tolerant. During those Autumn months, it will produce beautiful, breathtaking colors for you to enjoy. This tree will also attract several varieties of birds and other wildlife.
