Lavaburst™ Ohio Buckeye is a narrow, upright, northern hardy selection that maintains a bright green summer color, changing to orange-red in autumn. September Flare™ Sugar Maple is a very winter hardy selection noted for its reliable, early annual display of radiant orange-red to red fall color. The selections were developed by the NDSU Woody Plant Improvement program under the direction of Dr. Todd West and research specialist Greg Morgenson.
