'Redwing' Tatarian Maple Seed

    Description

    Latin Name: Acer tataricum

    Family: Aceraceae

    Native Range: Asia and eastern Europe

    Seed Source:  Seed production orchard near Indian Head Saskatchewan.

    Height and Spread: 5m x 4m (25 years)

    Overview: Tatarian maple grows best in moist well-drained soil, but tolerates a variety of soils, poor soil fertility, and is pH adaptable. The 'Redwing' tatarian maple seed strain was selected for its tolerance to dry and alkaline soils. Its name reflects the bright red samaras. It tolerates shade but develops a better fall color if grown in full sun.

    Fruits: Fruit samaras are 1.5-2.5 cm long, held in small panicles, and red to brown in colour.

    Average number of seeds/packet: 125

    SEED TREATMENT / SOWING

    Stratification: Soak the seed for 24 hours and then warm stratify in moist sand at 20°C followed by cool strat at 5°C for 120 days

    Ideal sowing time: Spring (stratified seed) or fall (non-stratified)

    Sowing instructions: Outdoors - sow 0.5 cm deep, 50 seeds/meter; Greenhouse - sow 3 seeds per cell.

    Growing conditions: Best growth on medium-textured soils with soil pH 7.0 to 8.0. Fertilization is not required.

    Agroforestry Value

    'Redwing' tatarian maple is used in farm or field shelterbelts where a fast-growing, flood tolerant, tough tree is needed. The main ornamental value of 'Redwing' tatarian maple is its red fall color and fruit. This is an excellent, low-growing tree for small yards. It is sometimes used for hedges or screens.
