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.

* Dense Shrub or Small Tree 
* Red and Orange Fall Foliage
* Full Sun and Adaptable
