Commonly Asked Questions

How fast does Autumn Blaze grow?

This maple cultivar is known for its rapid growth, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a relatively quick establishment of a shade tree in their landscape.


Is Autumn Blaze drought tolerant?

While it prefers consistently moist soil, Autumn Blaze Maple exhibits good drought tolerance once established. Adequate watering during dry spells contributes to overall health and vigor.


How do I achieve the best results for Autumn colour change?

For best results, plant in an area that receives ample sunlight, preferably in a location with full sun to partial shade. Adequate sunlight promotes healthy foliage and intensifies the Autumn coloration. Make sure soil is well draining, avoiding areas that are prone to drought or have compacted soil. Prune the tree selectively to maintain a balanced canopy and remove any dead or diseased branches. Proper spacing within the canopy allows sunlight to reach all parts of the tree, contributing to uniform color change. Lastly, be patient and allow the tree to mature. The brilliance of fall foliage can improve as the tree establishes itself and matures.


How do I look after an Autumn Blaze?

Choose a well-draining location with full to partial sunlight for optimal growth. Autumn Blaze Maples are adaptable to various soil types but prefer slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soil. Plant in early spring or fall. Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree to retain soil moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weeds. Keep the mulch away from the trunk to prevent potential issues with bark and root health.
