Why plant Flame Amur Maple?
Amur Maple is a tough, cold-hardy tree that gives you an easy way to add some hot fall color to your landscape. You'll love the flaming red tones these Maple leaves turn in sunny locations (in shadier spots, you'll get more orange and yellow). This small ornamental tree takes on a rounded shape and creates just enough shade for an outdoor sitting area made complete with a couple of cozy chairs or an inviting bench. It can be used individually or planted in natural groves, you will enjoy the branching structure and the atmosphere created under this carefree tree for problem areas in your landscape!
How to use Flame Amur Maple in the landscape?
Excellent specimen tree with outstanding autumn color that's easy to grow. Great choice of a small tree that creates a good atmosphere for any landscape. Bright red seed pods bring enjoyment during fall months. The Amur Maple tree leafs out before all other deciduous trees in spring, giving it a good, long season of coverage when used as a privacy screen, too!
Hardiness Zone: 3-8
How To Plant Flame Amur Maple
Acer ginnala or Amur Maple is grown mostly because of the outstanding fall foliage color. This naturally low branching small growing tree has a form more like a shrub if let go on its own. We love this tree for even more reasons than the great fall color. Amur Maple is very easy to grow with little pest problems and very little care is required.
How To Water
When freshly planted, be sure to water regularly until the tree becomes established. Amur Maple can withstand some wetter locations but prefers dryer soils. It performs very well in dry conditions and through droughts.
How To Fertilize
The Flame Amur Maple is relatively low-maintenance in the fertilizer department as well. Simply apply the Bower & Branch Elements Starter Plant Food when planting and it should be good to go!
How To Prune
Once established, minimal pruning is required, only removing branches where desired to maintain overall shape. This tree responds well to pruning in the very early Spring right through mid Summer. Best not to prune from early Fall on through Winter.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
