Plant Type: Deciduous Shrubs, Deciduous Trees

A small, hardy, graceful tree popular for its fiery red fall color and bright red samaras. Slow growing. Amur maple is a multi-stemmed, deciduous small tree that typically grows 15′ to 20′ tall. Multiple trunks are common. Small clusters of yellowish white flowers in spring are followed by red, two-winged samaras which often persist into late autumn or winter. Unlike most other maples, the flowers of Amur maple are fragrant. Toothed, 3-lobed green leaves turn a brilliant, fiery red in autumn.
