  • Embers Amur Maple

    A great xeriscape plant, this outstanding Amur Maple was selected by Bailey Nurseries for its bright red fruit and exceptional scarlet fall color. Like our other ginnalas, 'Embers' is dug in spring, resulting in a later shipping date for these bareroot trees than our fall dug stock.

    One look is all you'll need to see that Fall Fiesta® is superior to the sort. The branching is full and symmetrical. Leathery, glossy, deep green leaves are resistant to leaf tatter and leafhopper damage. A rapid grower, easy to transplant and also resistant to sun scald and frost cracks. Outstanding fall color, shows far more oranges and reds than other sugar maples. Prefers a moist yet well-drained soil with a slight acidity for optimum growth.

  • Firefall™ Maple

    Firefall™ has an upright-oval form with good branch angles. This selection is male and therefore does not produce nuisance seeds. The foliage is an attractive medium green throughout the summer. Fall color is bright orange to scarlet and develops fairly early. This is a distinct advantage over some existing Freeman maple cultivars that color later and often do not develop much color in northern regions before freezing temperatures cause the foliage to drop. University of Minnesota introduction.
