Versatile Maple Highlights Any Location

Compact Amur Maple is an ornamental shrub.  It would make an excellent accent plant, hedge along an outbuilding or even a container plant for your patio. 

Your Compact Amur Maple has a compact, rounded form that fills out nicely with dark green, 3-lobed leaves. 

Clusters of small, pale yellow flowers will appear in spring to tease your senses with their subtle, sweet fragrance.  Double samara develop soon after and merge from green into brown for mid-summer. 

As delightful as all these features are however, you’ll see the true value of this diminutive shrub when it displays its autumn color.  Your Compact Amur Maple will burst forth in shades of orange and red that seem to burn like tiny beacons amid other fall plantings. 

The Compact Amur Maple grows naturally as a multi-stemmed, dense and compact shrub.  You could also prune it to a single or multi-stemmed small tree. 

Compact Amur Maple will grow to 6-10 feet tall with an equal spread.  It enjoys well-drained soils and full sun, but will tolerate some shade.  It’s reasonably drought tolerant once established. 

You can expect your Compact Amur Maple to have a 60 year lifespan, so whatever form you choose to grow your Maple in, you’re sure to enjoy it for a very long time.

Great Compromise Review by Mary
The husband wanted a huge Maple in our small yard. I got the Compact Amur Maple instead. I was going to train it into a tree but he likes it in it's natural state! Too funny. I love it though. I haven't seen one in our neighborhood either which makes it more special.
Excellent Small Tree Review by Grannygardener, NJ
I bought this tree from Nature Hills about 10 years ago. It was a bare root 3ft. stick. I planted it and decided to make it into a small single stem tree. It's a fast grower. This tree has thick branches that nobody can see through. Beautiful red, fall color - it is fantastic. The Robins love to make their nests in it. The only drawback is that the seeds are excessive when they drop in the fall and unless you clean them all up, you'll have about 20,000 seedlings! The height is about 20 ft. and I love this shrub/tree in spite of all the seeds!
Dense shrub Review by Deke
My compact Amur Maple is the thickest shrub I have. So dense, it makes you want to try and see through it. The denseness of the leaves really adds to the fall colors.
