Acers (maples) are trees and shrubs grown mainly for their colourful foliage. Many varieties are the trees and shrubs responsible for spectacular Autumn colours. Most species have palmate leaves that are lobed (usually 3 – 9 lobes). The flowers, which are green, yellow, orange or red, in racemes, umbels or corymbs, appear in early Spring, and are followed by fruit, – samaras – or “helicopters”, “whirlybirds” “maple keys” or “polynoses” due to the way they spin as they fall in Autumn.The Silver Maple tree is a relatively fast-growing deciduous tree, often growing to a height of 15–25 m (49–82 ft), occasionally to 35 m (115 ft). It is often found along waterways and in wetlands, leading to the colloquial name “water maple”.
