Autumn Blaze® Red Maple
Hardy, Fast-Growing Maple with Lasting Fall Color
Autumn Blaze (Acer fremanii) is prized as the fastest growing Maple tree with a hardy nature and brilliant color.
It would feel right at home beside your house to soften the hot summer sun or along a street or sidewalk. Due to its upward growth, the Autumn Blaze works well in clusters or as a stand-alone planting.
This Maple was introduction in 1982 as a cross between the red and silver Maple to provide a stronger and more color–consistent Maple for your home. It has rapidly become a highly sought after Maple variety in the US.
Imagine the beauty of the Autumn Blaze in your yard in the spring. Its 60 feet of reaching branches and 40 foot wide oval canopy create an image of symmetry year round.
The leaves emerge not as simply green, but already with a slight reddish tint. Through the summer you can almost watch it grow-up to 3+ feet each year!
In the fall the 5 inch orange-red leaves will still be dazzling your neighbors when other trees have long since faded.
One of the best things about the Autumn Blaze is that it’s carefree. You’ll never have to rake up messy seedlings or twigs. It’s even disease and pest resistant, so no messy sprays or treatments.
In drought conditions, this Maple can persevere on its own. When your neighbor is watching the heavy snows damage their trees, your Autumn Blaze will stand firm.
The Autumn Blaze Maple has won several “tree of the year” awards for its amazing unequaled qualities, and will certainly be a priceless addition to your home.
