The Autumn Blaze Maple Tree (Acer × freemanii 'Autumn Blaze') is a beautiful and popular hybrid maple tree that is known for its brilliant fall foliage. It is a cross between the red maple (Acer rubrum) and the silver maple (Acer saccharinum), and was developed in the early 1960s by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The tree has a rounded crown and dense, dark green foliage. The leaves are maple-shaped and turn a brilliant orange-red color in the fall.

The Autumn Blaze Maple Tree is a relatively low-maintenance tree. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. It is also drought-tolerant once established.

We cannot ship certain plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by the California Department of Agriculture.

Bare Root Plants: the plant is shipped with the roots taken out of the pot/ground, and the roots are then wrapped in moist paper, with or without soil. The roots wrapped in moist medium is then covered with some kind of plastic to hold the moisture. The paper with moisture will keep the plant alive, during the journey. The plants, once received, the roots should be given a soak for 30 minutes and planted immediately.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
