Acer rubrum 'Scarsen'

Acer rubrum (Scarlet Sentinel)
Scarlet Sentinel

Acer x freemanii, commonly called freeman maple, is a hybrid of red maple (A. rubrum) and silver maple (A. saccharinum). Only specific cultivars of the original cross are sold in commerce today. 'Scarsen', sold under the trade name of SCARLET SENTINEL, was patented in 1972. It is an upright, fast-growing, narrow-columnar deciduous tree with ascending branching. It typically matures over time to 40-45' tall. Tree crowns somewhat broaden as trees become more oval in habit with age. Dark green leaves with dentate to serrate margins are deeply cut with five pointed lobes. Leaves typically turn yellow-orange or yellow-red in fall.
