Small Maple with Spring and Fall Appeal

This is a small Maple tree with lovely spring flowers and a showy fall display.  It would look spectacular planted along the street in front of your home or even as a container or patio tree.
One of the great things about this small deciduous Maple is that you can grow it as a small tree or even a shrub.  There’s no need for a lot of room in order to have this tree grace your home, and it doesn’t demand any special care or concern.

It rises 15-20 feet with a spread of 15-28 feet and a lovely rounded crown. It can be allowed to grow into a large shrub or pruned to a mulit or single stemmed small tree.

The Amur’s charmingly fragrant scent heralds the spring each year, and you’ll adore the clusters of dainty white/pale yellow flowers scattered among its branches.

The 3 inch leaves consisting of 3 lobes provide your tree with a vibrant bright green color throughout the summer. 

There’s no doubt that you’ll feel your anticipation rise as autumn approaches and your Amur spices up your yard with stunning shades of scarlet.

The seeds are a samara that begin with a reddish hue and turns a light tan. 

They appear as seeds with tiny wings that enchant the viewer with their gentle manner of helicoptering along on the autumn breeze. 

The Royal Horticultural Society in the UK has bestowed the “Award of Garden Merit” on this variety of Maple. When you give one a home you’re sure to agree that the Flame Amur is one of the best Maples available on the market today.

Just ok Review by Charlie
I bought my trees last year and was hoping for beautiful fall color. Last year they didn't turn red at all but figured it might be from just being planted. However, this year they are not colorful either! Leaves are just turning a yellowish color and falling right off. I will say that they are growing very fast! That's why I gave it 3 stars!
Surprise Sequel Review by Keith
This was the second season for the tree. It really took off this year and had beautiful fall color. Can't wait until next year to see if it flowers and has a fragrant scent like the description.
Tree form plant Review by Rick
I am training my Amur Maple to be more tree like. I have pruned off several lower branches and it is starting to look great or like I wanted it.
Patio tree Review by Mary Jane
I put my amur maple in large pot and it is doing well. I was a little worried because I have never put a large plant in a pot before. I am anxious for spring to get here to enjoy the flowers again.
Foliage color Review by Mark
I am tempted to prune my flame amur maple to get more of a tree form but I hate to lose any of the fall color if I prune it off. I will make that decision next year.
