Amur Maple is an excellent, low growing tree for small yards. One of the very best trees for autumn color, when its foliage turns a stunning red. It is also very early into leaf in spring and produces yellow-white fragrant flowers in May. This is a small to medium tree with a rounded habit, and is good for parks and public gardens. Named for the Amur River that runs between eastern Siberia and Manchuria, this small, cold-weather maple has small toothed, bright green leaves. Amur Maple is also a very good specimen for landscaping and can also be used to form a deciduous hedge (see bottom photo).
