Named for its brilliant fall color, 'Flame' Amur maple is a small, vase-shaped, multi-trunked tree that grows to 20 feet tall by 20 feet wide. Adaptable to adverse conditions and cold-hardy to zone 2, it prefers full sun to part shade and moist well-drained soils. It can be grown either as a tree or a privacy hedge.

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 and red in the fall.
