Box Elder live stakes offer shade and aesthetic appeal to your yard and thrive well in both shade and sun.
The trees are stately and immediately add curb appeal to your property. This tree grows best in hardiness zones 3-7, grows quickly, and is tolerant of drought. Box Elder blooms in the beginning and middle of spring, usually in March or April. The tree features bright yellowish-green flowers that contrast well with the Kelly green leaves of the plant. The flowers grow in bunches along the stem of the box elder. While they can tolerate several soil conditions, neutral, well-drained soil is best.
Box Elder live stakes are one of the most popular landscape choices in the maple family. It is the most widely distributed maple tree in North America because it thrives in various types of weather. The tree is found in New York City, central Florida, and other metropolitan areas in the U.S. You can also find the tree in the Great Plains region of the United States since the plant thrives in extremely cold and dry conditions. The tree is a staple in Canadian landscapes as well. Box Elder also does particularly well in areas that get lots of rain and flooding. After a flood, the trees can thrive for up to 30 days in extremely wet soil.
Box Elder attracts several types of birds, which makes the trees, and your garden space, even more elegant.
The trees mature quickly and can grow up to 80 feet tall. The tree is a unique type of maple; its branches stay green throughout the lifespan of the tree and generally covered with bark. Box elders go nicely with other maples like the Scarlet Red and Silver and grow nicely with the Silky Dogwood and River Birch to create a stunning landscape.
