Acer platanoides MAPLE (lat. Acer platanoides) is one of the most common trees in St. Petersburg. Like forsythia, maple blooms before the first leaves appear on the tree, as it requires good lighting.

Already in May, clusters of small yellow-green flowers appear on maple branches. Flowering lasts about a week and a half, depending on weather conditions.

In the gardens of the Russian Museum, maple occupies a leading position in terms of numbers, and in terms of quantity it ranks second after linden. There are even more maple trees in the Mikhailovsky Garden than in the Summer Garden.

Now walking through our gardens, you can see greenish clouds in the crowns of trees – this is the flowering of the maple.

Take photos of the maple blossoms and share them on our social networks. Stay with us.
