Acer

Description: Acer x freemanii 'Autumn Blaze' is one of the best varieties for fiery autumn colour.

In the winter, the bare branches boast silvery-grey bark adding all year round interest. A cross between Acer rubrum x Acer saccharinum. A vigorous hybrid with deeply cut leaves and a dense oval head.

History: Originated from the USA.

Acer Growing Tips: Very easy to grow in a wide range of well-drained soils. They thrive in sun but with partial shade to protect the leaves from scorch. A sheltered area away from strong winds is preferred.
