Acer skutchii 'Tequila Sunrise' Pink Mexican Sugar Maple
Acer skutchii 'Tequila Sunrise'
Acer saccharum ssp. skutchii
Rare Mexican Cloud Forest Sugar Maple
This maple is the extremely rare Acer skutchii, often called the Cloud Forest Maple. This sugar maple leafs out with bright red new growth, turning to bright yellows and oranges in the fall. Although it is a relative to the sugar maple, it is extremely heat tolerant, reaching 30 ft in height.
Acer skutchii, also known as Acer saccharum ssp. skutchii, is naturally one of the southernmost growing maples in the world. It occurs in five disjunct populations, with four of them being in Mexico and one being in Guatemala. In its native habitat, it occurs in the cloud forests and along the rivers of the rainforest which are being destroyed, making the preservation of this tree extremely important.
Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Texas, has an amazing specimen that is a real gem to see in person. If you are interested in learning more about this tree feel free to check out the thesis, Ecology Of Disjunct Cloud Forest Sugar Maple Populations In North And Central America, which is a great study by Yalma Luisa Vargas-Rodriguez.
