Thinking about planting a tree? Are you envisioning planting a little sapling that will one day shade your home during hot summers to come or are you looking for a tree to add a specific ornamental flair to your yard or is your dream to plant a tree that provides delicious fruit throughout the summer. Many types of shade, ornamental and fruit trees can be grown in Colorado. Key factors to consider are tree hardiness, the length of time of cold dormancy, growing season length requirements, and disease susceptibility. Here are just a few examples of trees that the gardening experts at O'Toole's Garden Center know will thrive here in Colorado and recommend adding to your yard.

Japanese Maple

The natives of Japan and Korea are the most delicate and graceful of all maples. Japanese Maples have a variety of leaf shapes and colors, from soft green to deep purple. Their small size and growth rate make them popular container trees. In container or in the garden, Japanese Maples do best with some protection from the wind and a little extra care.
