Great Fall Color--Amur Maple

Amur maples (Acer ginnala) produce a vibrant autumnal display with orange, yellow, and red leaves all on the same tree.
These trees are small, only reaching 15 to 20 feet in height. They are often grown as multi-stemmed trees and can become shrubby if not pruned regularly to maintain their tree form. But it is well worth the effort, because doing so shows off the twisting branches which give the tree a picturesque form.
