A colourful plant for a woodland garden displaying white flowers in the spring, bright green foliage in the summer, and red or yellow, fall colour.
This species can reroot where the branches touch the soil. In some cases, colonies of vine maple grow into thick tangles; trappers referred to the vine as “devil wood.”
Native to the west coast of Canada and the U.S.
Vine maple can be grown as a tree or multi-stemmed clump. It grows well in shaded areas where the soil is moist and rich in nitrogen.
