The Amur maple is a small, round-headed, extremely hardy tree. Its red fall color is as brilliant as any of the maples. The winged seeds often hang onto the tree after the leaves have fallen, adding interest to the tree in winter. It is one of the best of the small trees, requiring practically no attention and able to grow in a wide range of soil types.
