Autumn Flame Maple Trees for Sale Online

The Autumn Flame Maple Tree (Acer rubrum) is an incredible hybrid with fiery red fall color, a rapid growth rate, and a columnar structure. What sets this tree apart from other popular yard trees is its sensational array of fall colors.

The leaves of this Maple are a vibrant green throughout the summer season, and transform to their renowned autumn tones in early fall. Notable for its early color change, the Autumn Flames change color two weeks before other maple trees. This also indicates that even in warmer climates, one can still experience astonishing fall color with the Autumn Flame Red Maple Tree.

The Autumn Flames will grow in both full sun and partial shade. Additionally, the Flaming trees would prefer a well draining soil blend. However they have particularly hardy root systems and will tolerate a wide range of soils. If planted in the proper conditions, the Flames will reach heights ranging from 40 feet to 50 feet tall.

While most often used as a specimen shade tree, the Autumn Flame looks marvelous when lining a driveway or street. The trees' compact form and small leaves make it ideal for a variety of yard plantings. The tree's compact growth makes for a low maintenance up keep. The popular yard tree rarely needs pruning to encourage the elevated canopy shade trees are known for.

In early spring, these fast-growing trees produce green and red flowers however, they do not produce those pesky "keys" that many other maples do. This is ideal for any gardener who does not want a lot of seasonal yard clean-up. Plant an Autumn Blaze Maples this spring season to enjoy a gorgeous spread of colors come fall!
