The Acer x Freemanii - Autumn Blaze Maple is one of the most popular new tree introductions in history. It provides brilliant fall color without the mess and maintenance. Very disease resistant, they’re not bothered by car exhaust and don’t drop seed pods. They are also very strong trees, resisting ice damage and high winds.
Autumn Blaze is a hybrid of two popular maples, the red and silver maple, though it has surpassed both in looks and popularity. It has the best of both, brilliant red color, dense branching, and a rapid growth rate.
