Native plant

Black Maple, a very close cousin to Sugar Maple, is more common as you go farther west through Iowa. The plant appears to be more tolerant of moist sites, and fall color tends to be more yellow than sugar maple. It is very shade-tolerant and, yes, you can make maple syrup from this plant.
