Today’s special is our Flame Hedge Maple. These are 12 to 24 inches tall and growing in quart containers. We have selected this tree as today’s plant because of the brilliant flame-colored leaves it shows in the fall. You can always tell the Flame Hedge Maple trees from the rest of the crowd in the fall.
Culture: Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to light shade. Best fall color in full sun. A vigorous grower that is very tolerant of temperature extremes. Tolerates somewhat heavy pruning and can be shaped to fit a variety of landscape uses. Transplants easily.
Noteworthy Characteristics: The Flame Hedge Maple is a multi-stemmed, deciduous small tree or shrub that typically grows 15′ to 20′ tall. Multiple trunks are common. Small clusters (to 1.5″ across) of yellowish white flowers in spring are followed by red, two-winged samaras which often persist into late autumn or winter. Unlike most other maples, its flowers are fragrant. Toothed, 3-lobed green leaves (to 3″ long) of this cultivar turn a brilliant, fiery red in autumn. This cultivar is usually grown from seed, and color variations may accordingly occur. Zones 2 to 8.
