Autumn Blaze Maples

This variety of Acer freemanii is a red maple are tidy ornamental trees with a shock of red colour in autumn that punches through the landscape and looks superb as the strong red accent in a stand of trees with mixed autumn foliage. It is suitable for most well drained soils and it prefers full sun. Autumn blaze belongs to the group of hybrid maples called Freeman's maples (Acer x freemanii), which are crossed from Red maples and Silver maples. These trees have a lovely upright, egg shaped canopy that naturally suits a medium sized garden or woodland and which also look good when planted as avenue trees. Autumn blaze is one of the best maples for autumn colour, both in terms of how vibrant it is and how long the display lasts. It is a sterile tree that makes no seeds, so it is propagated from grafted cuttings.It is extremely drought tolerant and can reach a height of about 20 metres.

History & uses of Acer freemanii Autumn Blaze

The Freemanii maples occur naturally in the wild, but the specific plants that are parents of all the modern, named cultivars have been bred from trees raised in the 1930's by Oliver Freeman of the US National Aboretum in Washington.
