Novum in November.

We're giving special attention to the Maple in the center circle at Wildwood this year.  Well, this blog is giving it special attention.

Each month, we're taking a snapshot and looking at the progression of colors throughout the year.  This month, it's at the peak of fall color.  The special characteristic of Novum is it has more orange tones than most upright trees in the fall.  So, while most red trees are bright, this maple positively glows.

And it looks great after a long summer of continuous hot sun and windy conditions!  The tree's canopy is beginning to cast shade on the center circle.  With next year's new growth Novum will probably be 20% larger!
