Acer x freemanii 'Armstrong'

Armstrong Maple

This species is a naturally occurring hybrid between silver maple (A. saccharinum) and red maple (A. rubrum) combining the adaptability and growth rate of silver maple with the bright red fall color of red maple. Armstong's fall color is not as good as some of the other cultivars but its upright, columnar growth habit is quite useful.

Growing Tips
Prefers partial shade or partial sun to full sun and moist soil. Tolerates alkaline soils better than red maple.
