Hot Wings® Maple gets its name from the showy red winged seeds that shine in bright contrast with its green summer foliage. This small tree blossoms with white clusters of flowers around May.

Hot Wings® Maple is a rare combination of the dependability of a Maple plus a refreshing decorative quality, all in one tree.
