Autumn Flame is one of the hardiest of Red Maples, is seedless, and is the first to color in the fall. Although its color doesn’t hold as long as Red Sunset®, which colors about a week later, it reliably produces a brilliant red. Slower growing with smaller leaves than most, Autumn Flame produces a very symmetrical, rounded crown.
