Autumn Flame Maple
Acer × freemanii.
Freeman maple or Freeman's maple, is a naturally occurring hybrid maple that is the result of a cross between Acer rubrum (red maple) and Acer saccharinum (silver maple). The fall foliage is a striking orange-red. It has many commercially available cultivars and is frequently used as a street tree.
Shipping size: 18" - 24"
The cultivars are typically deliberately hybridized and selected in nurseries, not drawn from the wild specimens. Usually infertile, they have stronger branch attachments than silver maples and faster growth rates than red maples.
