Autumn Flame Red Maple Trees (Acer rubrum) is an incredible hybrid with fiery red fall color, rapid growth rate, and columnar structure. However, the Autumn Flame is most famous for its early fall color. Although the leaves are vibrant green throughout the summer season, they transform to their renowned fall red 2 weeks before other maple trees. This also indicates that even in warmer climates one can still experience astonishing fall color with the Autumn Flame Maple Tree.

While most often used as a specimen shade tree, the Autumn Flame looks marvelous when lining a driveway or street. Maple leaves famously have 5 distinct lobes but once again, the Autumn Flame Stands apart; it features 3 central lobes that are bordered by 2 smaller lobes on either side. The leaves only reach 2 to 5 inches in diameter and grow in a compact habit, giving the tree in its entirety a dense structure. This remains true for the branching habit as well which 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 spring/summer clean-up and does not want to run the risk of the tree unexpectedly reproducing in other areas of the yard.
