    Beautiful Trees. We have 6 of them now and considering either one more or the cousin called Sun Valley maple. These trees while young are growing at a super fast rate (we need shade in our new home). We love the fullness of their shape and their long lasting even fall color. What's nicest to know is they are seedless. We bought 3 5gal Smart pots last year at Brian's suggestion. These 3 trees have grown 12" already and have just put on a 3" spurt in the last 2 weeks. I think in 2 years time we will not know the difference in the 6 plants because the smart pots got such a tremendous boost on the 1st year which is truly remarkable. We would like a little more variety but these have done so well we just might make it 7 and take a rest afterwards to watch them grow and mature. Somerset Estates maybe our new name.
