Flame Maple

Acer ginnala

The Amur Flame Maple is a very versatile multi-stemmed shrub/tree. It works well as a stand alone specimen, a small tree, or you can even shear it and use it as a large shrub. This maple tree produces yellowish-white clusters of fragrant flowers in spring and bright red winged seeds in the spring and summer. The red fall color is nothing short of stunning, it almost appears to be on fire. This tree has a lower canopy, around 4 or 5 feet off the ground.

The Amur Flame Maple is also known as the Amur Maple.

The Amur Flame Maple has dark green leaves that are lighter color on the underside.  These leaves turn into an epic red show each fall that gives the appearance the tree is on fire it glows so bright.  This multi-stemmed tree / shrub is a great addition to your natural or home landscape.
