Acer Flame Amur Maple
Acer ginnala 'Flame'
This is an ideal tree for a normal sized or small yard!
A spectacular choice for its reliable blazing red fall color and bright red fruits in summer, this is a shapely small tree; very hardy and adaptable, great as a fall accent in smaller home landscapes. It will provide wonderful interest to your landscape without overpowering your home. A proven prairie hardy specimen!
It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 4 feet from the ground and is suitable for planting under power lines. A relatively low maintenance tree, and should only be pruned in summer after the leaves have fully developed, as it may 'bleed' sap if pruned in late winter or early spring. It has no significant negative characteristics.
Fall color is a brilliant scarlet.
