Brighten your landscape in autumn, and throughout the year, with this new classic. Autumn Blaze Maple is a large, fast-growing tree known for its amazing, fiery autumn color. It is a hybrid of red and silver maples, combining the best of both trees for exceptional vigor and adaptability. Among the most popular hybrid maples in the US, Autumn Blaze won multiple awards for its tolerance of urban environs in the early 2000s. It is resistant to leafhoppers and fungi, as well as many other common insects and diseases. This large tree grows nearly three feet per year before reaching maximum size, and its large stature makes it perfect for large lawns or sprawling business landscapes. Acer x freemanii
