HOTWINGS® Tatarian Maple  (Acer tataricum  'GarAnn' PP 15,023) is the brainchild of Fort Collins Wholesale Nursery owner Gary Epstein.  It started as a quest to find an alkaline soil tolerant alternative to the popular Amur Maple (Acer ginalla).  Gary took a chance and started growing seedlings of Tatarian Maple (Acer tataricum) because of it's similar mature size and ornamental features - but was reported to be much more adaptable to alkaline soils.
