Acer Glabrum (Rocky Mountain Maple)

(1 customer review)


An extremely hardy deciduous shrub or small tree that can reach 20ft., but most often occurs as a multi-stemmed shrub 5’ to 6’ tall. Bright green leaves turn orange to bright red in the fall. For those who have traveled the Rocky Mountains in the fall, this is a brilliant red plant seen on the hillsides and along creeks. It has many uses; as a single specimen, along a fence line or in groupings. It is an impressive addition to any landscape!

Colorado Hardy Plants are just that… hardy! We have sought out plant varieties that provide low maintenance, use little or no water once established, and are simply hardy enough to grow where others don’t.

We grow and ship our plants in 5″ or quart-size (in certain varieties) plastic containers. Knowing that the root system is the most important part of the plant we guarantee. our plants to have a large root system that fills the container.

CHP is a small family operation! We propagate, pot, water, prune, and personally package the pants you order from us. Most of our plants are grown from cuttings taken from the plants or seeds collected nearby the nursery at an elevation of 6300 ft. Our weather is extreme with temps below 0 are common in the winter and intense sunlight all summer long. We don’t grow plants in heated greenhouses, they have to be able to survive the elements!

Please note that deciduous plants ordered in the winter months and early spring will have been pruned a minimum of 30% compared to photos and may have no leaves

Our nursery is also licensed and inspected by the Colorado Department of Agriculture, Nursery Division and holds a current Japanese Beetle Certificate. We only ship USPS Priority Mail, so your plants are sure to arrive quickly. You’ll note in our feedback that our shipping process is a sight to behold.

    I’m increasing the amount of native plants in my yard and bought the last three of these that were in stock last year in 5 inch containers. They arrived alive and well, but were definitely ready to get in the ground. All three survived the winter and are flourishing this spring with very dense leaves. I love these maples and was happy to find a native plant supplier that could quickly ship them. I would highly recommend both the maples as an addition to your landscape and Colorado Hardy Plants as a supplier.
