First Editions® Matador™ Maple

Discovered in 1997 at our container tree farm by one of our employees, Kevin Johnston. This freemanii cultivar was selected because of its superior habit and fall color. Matador™ has a deeper red fall color than Autumn Blaze® and colors more consistently than Sienna Glen®. An adaptable tree with an upright, symmetrical form. Gains its fall color a bit later than other cultivars and holds its leaves longer. Excellent choice for lawn, street or park.

  • Height: 40 - 45'
  • Spread: 20 - 40'
  • Shape: Upright oval
  • Foliage: Green
  • Fall Foliage: Deep red to orange-red

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!

Zehr’s has a wonderful, reasonably priced assortment of garden plants and the staff is friendly and helpful. I’m already planning on going back next spring.
