Belonging to the Sapindaceae family of trees, The Legacy Sugar Maple Tree grows in the hardwood forests of Canada and the eastern part of the United States. The Legacy Sugar Maple Tree is a deciduous tree native to North Eastern US and Canada. It is primarily grown for lumber and the syrup it produces, yet it is a must-have as an ornamental in your home garden landscape.

The Legacy Sugar Maple bears a dense crown that grows oval to provide shade in the summer. Its leaves are dark green, and small, slender-stemmed green flowers grow in groups hanging downward from the branches The Legacy Silver Maple flowers in April and May. By autumn, the tree produces the “helicopter” winged seeds while its leaves turn bright shades of orange and red.

Sugar maple care and maintenance

When planting your Legacy Sugar Maple Tree, pick a site with full or partial sun, with at least four hours of unfiltered direct sun each day. The Legacy Sugar maple tree grows best in deep, well-drained soil that is slightly alkaline and acidic. Once planted, the tree will grow slowly to medium, averaging one to two feet per year. Next, irrigate your Legacy Sugar Maple Tree during dry weather

While the Legacy Sugar Maple tree is drought tolerant, it does best in moist soil, so don’t make the ground too wet.
