Maple, Amur –
Amur maple is a multi-stemmed, deciduous small tree or shrub that typically grows 15′ to 20′ tall. Multiple trunks are common. Small clusters (to 1.5″ across) 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 (to 3″ long) of this cultivar turn a brilliant, fiery red in autumn. This cultivar is usually grown from seed, and color variations may accordingly occur.
