Vine maple is a native understory tree found in moist woodlands from British Columbia south to
northern California. Its growth habit tends to be shrubby and multi-stemmed and sprawling in
forest shade but has a more upright and dense shape in sunny locations. The shallow-lobed, fanshaped leaves are bright green in the summer and feature attractive gold and red fall color. It has
small reddish flowers in springtime, followed later in the summer by “bow-tie” shaped winged
fruits, which often turn bright red when mature in the fall
Vine maples prefer moist shady locations but can tolerate full sun and are quite adaptable to most
soil conditions. Fall color is best with at least half a day of sun. They grow in a wide range of
soil types and are drought tolerant once established.
Prune to shape or to remove wayward, broken, dead, or diseased branches and limbs, in late fall,
early winter.
Vine maples are considered to be the most useful native trees for the Pacific Northwestern
landscape due to their beauty, adaptability, and small size. A popular spot for this small tree is in
a courtyard garden, where its trunks give the illusion of a small grove.
