The Autumn Flame Red Maple is a selected form of the native red maple tree, with outstanding fall colors of crimson and scarlet, turning red early in the season and holding well throughout the fall. It is a rapid growing tree, with a well-formed rounded crown that is an ideal choice for a shade tree on your lawn, for a specimen tree anywhere in the garden, for a privacy screen, or even as a beautiful bonsai tree.

The Autumn Flame Red Maple grows to around 50 feet tall and as much across, in time, and especially during its early years it can grow 3 feet in a year, so it will soon be a great specimen in your garden. Unlike most other maples, this tree does not produce those annoying maple seeds, or ‘keys’ as they are known, which make such a mess and can sprout all over your garden. So if you would love a colorful maple tree, but don’t want the pesky seeds, this is the tree for you.

  • Rapid growing shade or privacy tree
  • Spectacular brilliant scarlet fall color
  • Easily grown in any type of soil and drought resistant
  • Hardy to minus 40 degrees, but grows well in Florida too
  • Perfect lawn specimen for your new home – or any home

Plant your Autumn Flame Red Maple in sun or partial shade, in any kind of soil. It grows best in damper soils, but it is also very drought-resistant once established. It needs no trimming to develop a beautiful, rounded crown, just trim up the trunk when young to the height you need for clearance underneath, and get ready to put out the barbecue and picnic table.
