In the Springtime in the Tri-Cities Washington area, bees will be buzzing before many trees have started to bloom.
If you take a closer look at red maple trees, many of them will be pushing small flowers that are quite beautiful, giving off their sustaining pollen to the bees.
Most red maples will bloom with red flowers. Here we want to share about a few varieties that have quite beautiful flowers in the Spring time around March.
Sun Valley Red Maple
In my opinion, Sun Valley Maple's have the most beautiful spring maple flower. Sun valley maples flowers are rounded balls with orange and red coloring throughout. Even at a distance they look stunning.
Red Sunset Red Maple
Red Sunset Maple flowers are beautiful as well. Instead of an orange and lighter red color they take on a drooping deep red color in the March spring time. They also bunch together in batches that look like red balls.
The flowers kind of remind me of a red velvet chocolate cake. Set on the backdrop of deep white and brown bark, the Red Sunset Flowers will make you stop and wonder what they are doing as they start to get ready for summer.
Somerset Red Maple
The Somerset Red Maple is another beautiful variety of maple tree. Not only does it have a beautiful shape when it matures; in the springtime it's flower will make you think about how great springtime is when you stop by it.
The Somerset Red Maple Flowers are red with a hint of pink within them. They are kind of a mixture between the red sunset maple and the Sun valley maple flowers. A gorgeous pink red that is unforgettable as the Somerset Red Maple matures.
