Sizing guide
Acer Autumn Blaze maple is a medium to large deciduous shade tree with ascending branches known for great autumn color. Looks fantastic as large scale landscape planting along driveways or as a specimen tree. The traditional maple shaped leaves turn lipstick red in the autumn providing fantastic contrast to its green surroundings.
Cooler autumn weather helps promote deeper, red color in the foliage before it drops. 
Water moderately during first summer, and keep just barely moist during extreme summer heat. Mulching will certainly help with this. 
Acer x freemanii 'Autumn Blaze' is a hybrid species of deciduous tree that is a cross between Acer rubrum (Red Maple) and Acer saccharinum (Silver Maple). It belongs to the family Sapindaceae and is commonly known as Autumn Blaze Maple.
Autumn Blaze Maple is a fast-growing tree and has a rounded, oval-shaped crown and produces medium-green, lobed leaves that turn bright orange-red in the fall. The leaves may persist on the tree longer than other maples, adding to its ornamental value.
In the spring, Autumn Blaze Maple produces clusters of small, red flowers that are followed by winged samaras or 'helicopters' in summer. These are the tree's fruits and they are dispersed by the wind.Autumn Blaze Maple is a popular species for landscaping, particularly for its striking fall foliage and fast growth rate. It prefers well-drained soil and full sun, but can also tolerate partial shade. It is relatively low-maintenance and has good resistance to pests and diseases.
