Autumn Blaze® Maple
ACER x freemanii
2004 Urban Tree of the Year
chosen by The Society of Municipal Arborists
1997 Tree of the Year 
chosen by Iowa's Nursery & Landscape Association

This spectacular tree has become one of the most desired trees in the U.S. and is quickly becoming popular in other countries.  Autumn Blaze® is a hybrid (red & silver maple) tree that has the vigor and adaptability of the silver maple with the beauty and strength of the red maple.  This cultivar is known for it's superior fall color, unexcelled growth rates, leafhopper tolerance and the adaptability to an extremely wide range of climate and soil conditions.

From our 16 years of growing experience with Autumn Blaze® we have found that high rates of nitrogen will give amazing results and will eliminate most of the splitting problems associated with maples due to verticiliar wilt.

Recent University studies have shown Autumn Blaze® superior to most Rubrums and other Freemanii Maples available today.  For astonishing, long lasting fall color use Autumn Blaze®.  Poplar Farms invests extra time on these trees to produce premium specimen grade trees.  You won't be disappointed!
