About Florida Maple
From the University of Florida:
"Florida maple is native to Florida and naturally occurs primarily in the pandhandle, with small isolated populations in Central Florida. Some authorities treat Florida maple as a subspecies of sugar maple and call it Acer saccharum ssp. Floridanum, while other authorities use Acer barbatum or Acer barbatum ssp. Floridanum to refer to Florida maple. The deciduous Florida maple (Acer floridanum) reaches 50 to 60 feet in height but is most often seen at 20 to 30 feet.
Displaying muted yellow or orange fall leaf color, Florida maple is suitable for use as a specimen, park or street tree, or for use in woodland areas. The round- to oval-growth habit makes it an ideal shade or street tree. The edges of the leaves turn under slightly, giving them a distinct appearance. The trunk on older specimens resembles that on the northern sugar maple, which is an attractive gray with longitudinal ribs."

If your tree perishes despite your honest efforts, we will be happy to replace it with a small-sized seedling for just the cost of shipping/handling (typically around $5). You can learn more about our guarantee and tree replacement policy here.
Seedling Size Chart: Medium
Due to the dynamic nature of actively growing trees, as well as the tremendous variation between species’ growth rates, we rely on the cubic volume of a seedling’s root mass to determine its “size” (Small / Medium / Large / XL). Within each size there is minor variance — the dimensions provided here represent the category minimum. If exact measurements are essential, please contact us about current stock.
