Acer saccharum 'Fall Fiesta' sugar maple is regarded as a stand-out cultivar of sugar maple for its outstanding an vigorous growth rate, its showy, deep green summer foliage, and its autumn colors. In addition to its aesthetics, 'Fall Fiesta' is also noted for its excellent disease and environmental resistance, tolerating and thriving through heat, wind, drought, leaf tatter, and leaf scorch!

'Fall Fiesta' is a fast-growing tree among sugar maples, and can get up to 40-80' tall, but occasionally even larger up to 100 feet tall, maintaining its upright, symmetrical form all the way. In the spring, Acer saccharum produces small red and green flowers that are occasionally eaten by birds, but which also mature to samaras, winged seed pods for easy dispersal by wind, in the later spring and summer. Like the red maple, sugar maples support host colonies of Rosy Maple Moth and Cecropia Moth caterpillars, which also help to attract birds and small mammals. In the fall, this cultivar's large, waxy, bright green leaves turns to shades of yellow, orange, and red putting on an unforgettable 'Fall Fiesta' of autumnal hues, making it an especially showy specimen or shady tree.
