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. This cultivar is so named for its bright red fruit (samaras) that contrast against its green foliage. It can reach a height of 30 feet with a slightly narrower spread. It is tall enough to be an effective shade tree, but can be trained as a hedge.
