Rapid Growth and Intense Fall Colors: One of the most striking features of Autumn Blaze Maple is its fast growth rate, up to 3’ per year, culminating in a majestic presence in your garden. In fall, its leaves transform into a fiery red hue, creating a breathtaking display that captures the essence of the season. 

Award Winning and Easy to Care For: Recognized for its outstanding qualities, this maple won the Urban Tree of the Year award two consecutive years. It is known for easy care, with fewer issues from pests like leafhoppers and diseases like verticillium than other maple varieties. Its robust disease resistance and pollution tolerance make it a reliable choice for urban and suburban gardens alike. 

Adaptable to Various Climates: This tree is a champion of adaptability, thriving in a wide range of climates. It is particularly well suited for Northern gardens, showing good resistance to ice and wind damage. As the bark matures and thickens, the tree becomes even more resilient, making it a lasting feature in your landscape. 

Thrives in Various Soil Conditions: Autumn Blaze is not fussy about soil. It grows well in poorer soils, tolerating clay, dry and sandy conditions. Younger trees even prefer wet soil, making this maple an excellent choice for rain gardens. 

Functional and Aesthetic Uses: Beyond its stunning appearance, this maple serves multiple functional purposes. Use its lush foliage for privacy and screening, or as a natural canopy to provide cool shade in your landscape.
