Maple - Autumn BlazeAcer freemanii ‘Jeffersred’

True to its name, Autumn Blaze is an ornamental tree with spectacular flame-colored fall foliage. The leaves are red-tinged in the spring, turn full green in the summer, and then erupt into its flame-like yellow and red in the fall. Besides its spectacular fall color, Autumn Blaze's upright rounded habit provides great shade for your yard and will keep you and your home cool during the hot days of summer. It is a fast-growing, deciduous tree which can reach heights of about 35 feet tall with a 30 feet spread. It is hardy to -25 degrees (Zones 3-8). Plant Autumn Blaze in full sun with moist, well-drained soil. This maple is partial to wet sites.

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
I ordered two Autumn Blaze maples. Very quick shipment. One of them was damaged in shipment and a replacement was sent very quickly and with no problems. Both trees look healthy and I can't wait to watch them grow over the years.
Arrived in very nice shape and has continued to do well after planting.
Plants in fine condition great service. Have been buying plants from company for two years now and always very satisfied
Ordered for my wife as part of her Christmas---she was very pleased with tree. Excellent service and excellent tree--I was IMPRESSED with the the quality of the shipping carton and care given to protect trees in shipment....100% satisifed.
The trees arrived well packaged. I took them out and followed the directions waiting a few days before planting. They are now in the ground and seem to be doing well. I was a bit nervous since I am in Wisconsin and they came from FL but so far so good (fingers crossed).
