Acer saccharum ‘Barrett Cole’
An average tree for the climate of Keizer, Oregon.
Apollo Maple is a patented cultivar of the popular sugar maple, being introduced by J. Frank Schmidt Nursery in Boring, Oregon. In the trade is planted in tight spaces as it has only a limited spread.
This is a deciduous shade tree that grows to 30’ in height but only to 10’ in width at maturity, which is nearly half the size of regular sugar maple cultivars. It features a dense branching habit and certainly a very narrow growth habit. During the summer the leaves are dark green, and can withstand summer heat. In the fall the leaves morph from yellow-orange to red before they are shed.
