Autumn Blaze® Maple
Long Lasting Fall Color Autumn Blaze Maple
The Autumn Blaze Red Maple (Acer x freemanii 'Jeffersred') offers the best of both worlds. As a cross between the red and silver maple, it offers the vivid fall color from the Red Maple and its fast-growing and adaptive nature comes from the Silver Maple. This strong and beautiful tree would look lovely in your yard and provide you with plenty of shade to help with the intense summer sun.
In spring when this robust tree sprouts its fresh foliage, its leaves appear red tinted rather than just green. And the Autumn Blaze Red Maple seems to shoot upward as it has a growth rate of three feet per year.
Owners of the Autumn Blaze Red Maple are gifted with a spectacular show once fall rolls around. This maple's 5-inch leaves turn a brilliant red-orange. They're so vibrant the neighbors can practically see them from blocks away. And these bright leaves stick around long after others fade and fall from other trees.
This hardy tree looks stately with its wide ovular spring canopy and symmetric growth habit. These are among the reasons this is one of the most popular varieties of maples in the United States.
The upward growth of the Autumn Blaze Maple lends itself to be planted individually or in clusters. This beautiful feature makes it quite versatile in the landscape.
We're not the only ones that think this tree is award-worthy. In fact, it has won numerous Tree of the Year awards. And this beauty queen isn't fragile. This variety is pest and disease resistant. It's also great at taking care of itself during drought conditions. Its strong branches do an impressive job of holding snow during winter.
