Pacific Sunset maple
I have a Pacific Sunset Maple tree and I was told when I bought it that it would not get the helicoper/twirly seeds on it. However, it has gotten them every year since I've had it. Do you know whether they normally get these or not??
You have a gorgeous tree! I can find no reference to it being seedless; indeed the Bowling Green department of works arborist file on the variety (http://www.bgohio.org/departments/public-works-department/arborist/files/Pacific%20Sunset%20Maple.pd...) shows a picture of the seeds (officially called "samaras"). It is a hybrid (Norway and Shantung maples: Acer platanoides × Acer truncatum), so perhaps the salesperson meant that the seeds would not produce seedlings exactly like the parent (it was actually patented in 1991). So I would say it is normal for the tree to produce seeds.
