“A growing source of excellence”

(Freeman’s Maple)

Acer x freemanii is a hybrid of its two North American parents, Acer saccharinum (Silver Maple) and Acer rubrum (Red Maple). It takes the best qualities from each, hardiness and resilience from the Silver Maple, attractive colouring from the Red Maple, overall making it a superb tree.

It is a fast growing, oval crowned, deciduous tree, ideal for large gardens and open spaces. In Spring, the leaves appear, 3-5 lobes and deeply cut, turning dark green and the season progresses. As the Autumn sets in, the blaze of red foliage creates a marvellous impact. Unlike Acer rubrum, acid soils are not required to ensure the intense colour.

A resistance to most pests and diseases also make it a popular choice and you will often find that it is widely planted throughout the United States.
