Quick Overview:

Brilliant red fall color plus upright, broadly pyramidal form make this Schmidt introduction a standout. The refined form and foliage of the best Acer rubrum cultivars combine with the faster growth rate normally found in Acer x freemanii. A straight and dominant central leader results in strong branch angles that make it easier to grow.
