Acer negundo ‘Kelly’s Gold’. This form of the Boxelder maple has striking yellow colored twigs and young branches especially noticeable in the winter months. The leaves are a yellow green in color and have three lobes. Overall, the Boxelder has been described as ‘short-lived’ and brittle. Certainly care should be taken in the placement of this tree. Creative pruning can keep the majority of the tree growing with vigorous young shoots which will have the brightest color. During our sometimes drab winter months, Kelly’s Gold Boxelder brightens the spirit.
