AUTUMN BLAZE FREEMAN MAPLE
Autumn Blaze is a rapid-growing Freeman Maple cultivar that can tolerate drought and clay soils once established. It develops strong branching and an upright, oval growth pattern. Tiny red flower clusters develop into seeds (samaras) that are sterile. Deep green leaves have silvery undersides, and turn bright red in the fall, and they keep their color longer than other maples. Bark is silvery-gray when young. This is a great and adaptable shade tree.
