Flowers and Flags

Though our flag is known for its stars and stripes, more countries than you might think use plants as symbols instead. Canada, our neighbor to the north, is famous for its maple leaf.

Eritrea uses an olive tree. The flag for Norfolk Island in Australia uses the Norfolk pine. Here in the United States, South Carolina uses the palmetto tree.

The original symbolism of the plant is now lost in other cases, such as in South Carolina. The palmetto is the state tree. However, for some flags, the plant's symbolism does transcend national boundaries and means something universal.

The Kurai flower on the flag of Bashkortostan, a Russian republic, means friendship. The seven petals on the flower symbolize seven tribes which create the unity of their land. Several types of the maple tree, symbolized on the Canadian flag and useful for maple syrup and sturdy furniture, are available in our online plant nursery. Read on to learn more about the Autumn Blaze Maple, silver maple, and box elder, among others.

Red Maple Tree - TN Nursery

Red Maple Tree

Red Maple tree is native to North America, known for its striking spring scarlet flowers, brilliant fall foliage, and distinctive twigs and leaf stems. It is a versatile and aesthetically pleasing choice for landscaping, offering various benefits that enhance outdoor spaces. With its striking foliage, adaptable nature, and environmental contributions, it has become a popular option for residential and commercial landscaping projects. When it comes to gardens, the Red Maple Tree is a special case because it often exceeds 100 feet in height. Its imposing nature and brilliantly colored foliage during the spring and fall make it a breathtaking sight in any garden. Obviously, it is a focal point because it will dominate any garden landscape. The Flowers Of The Red Maple Tree This plant won't produce blooms until it is roughly eight years old. When the flowers do emerge from them, they are tiny and scarlet, giving this maple its name. Interestingly, these pretty little flowers emerge as early as December each year, so they will add splashes of crimson to the winter landscape in the garden. The male and female flowers are each a different shade, adding to the color palette of this stately plant. The flowers of this plant fade by the end of May, but the plant still looks like it's got flowers in bloom after pollination of the flowers. After the flowers fall away, beautiful samaras form in clusters throughout the summer, forming a wonderful contrast with the leaves. The Leaves Of The Red Maple Tree Speaking of the leaves, they are lush and verdant, having one of the most famous shapes of any leaf in the plant kingdom. As the leaves turn colors in the autumn, they're not just one color. Gorgeous streaks of orange and yellow form throughout it, creating an almost kaleidoscopic effect as the eyes take in the majesty of the plant. Garden Continuity Of The Red Maple Tree Because this plant has so many colors, it goes well with many perennials of different shades, accentuating the colors of the other plants in the garden and vice versa. Because it is such a large plant for any garden, it's just right as a host for epiphytic plants to grow upon it. In this way, this plant can be integrated into the garden. Environmental Impact Of The Red Maple Tree Particularly for bumble bees, this plant is a necessary part of the food cycle as winter turns to spring. Because it flowers so early, it provides an exceptional source of pollen and nectar for hungry pollinators before almost any other plants bloom or produce leaves. These plants also help prevent soil erosion with their root systems, especially in areas with a wet climate.
