Description

Amur maple is a large, deciduous shrub or small tree that is renowned for its flame-colored fall foliage. It is versatile and does well in ornamental plantings, open disturbed areas, open woodlands, and forest edges. It can be grown as a multi-stemmed bush or pruned into a single-stemmed small tree. It has glossy dark green leaves in the classic maple shape but with an elongated middle lobe. Fragrant yellowish white flowers appear in loose clusters with young leaves and it has the double-winged samara seed characteristic to the maple tree family, which are held onto the tree throughout winter. For conservation purposes, Amur maple is useful as a windbreak, hedge, or screen planting and it provides good cover and dense shade to wildlife.

Size: 8-20″ bareroot seedling
