Angyo Weeping Trident Maple
Here comes a new addition to the family of weeping ornamentals. We first heard of this unusual variety from the dynamic duo of nursery adventures, the indomitable Don Shadow and audacious Captain (Fred) Hooks. This plant is of great interest because of the proven merits of Trident Maple. As a shade tree, Trident has prospered where other maples falter. The small glossy leaves are more suited to hot, trying conditions, the attractive bark and dependable fall color are enjoyed in an extended range from Oklahoma through the deep South and up the East Coast. ‘Angyo Weeping’ will presumably present a pendulous package of those same qualities for specimen uses. Mature dimensions are as yet unknown, but like many weeping forms, it may be malleable with training and pruning.
