Autumn Blaze Maple
Acer Autumn Blaze originated at Jeffers Nursery in Ohio.
It was developed to have the best points of the Red Maple cultivars with the vigor of Silver Maple.
The experiment was successful, although we hear grumbles in some areas about fall color.
This tree very quickly became the most popular of all the Red Maple varieties.
Like it’s parents, it has few if any insect pests, and Verticillium is the only real disease problem.
Autumn Blaze is grown from cuttings so there is no incompatibility problems.
Grows to 50 ft and 40 ft wide
