Amur maple, also called Tatarian maple, can be grown either as a small, upright spreading tree with a dense, rounded crown or a large multi-stemmed shrub. It is easy to grow in moist, rich, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade and performs well in areas with cool summer climates. Amur maple makes an unusual specimen tree or shrub; its light green leaves turn yellow.

Compact Amur maple is a small deciduous tree that grows 6-8 feet tall and 8-10 feet wide with light green leaves that turn brilliant scarlet in the fall. Tough and drought-tolerant, it grows best in full to partial sun. It can be grown either as a small tree or a privacy hedge.
