Acer saccharum 'Bailsta' FALL FIESTA



FALL FIESTA is noted for its (1) vigorous and rapid growth rate, (2) upright, rounded, symmetrical form, (3) thick, leathery, glossy, deep green leaves with waxy upper surfaces and more truncate bases, (4) good resistance to leaf tatter and leaf scorch, (5) good resistance to summer heat, wind and drought, (6) fall color featuring more oranges and reds and (7) excellent winter hardiness. Leathery, dark green leaves (each to 6” long) turn excellent shades of yellow, orange and scarlet in fall. Pale yellowish-green flowers appear in clusters in spring before the leaves emerge. Flowers give way to clusters of paired samaras. U. S. Plant Patent PP11,119 was issued on November 9, 1999.
