(Acer x freemanii)

Freeman maple is a hybrid of acer rubrum (red maple) and acer saccharinum (silver maple) that combines characteristics of each. Where the species overlap, wild hybrids can be found. The leaves are similar to red maple with deeper lobes but can have a silver underside of the leaf as well. It grows quickly, with a narrow crown of ascending branches to roughly 15-20m tall. As with red maple, it has a vibrant leaf colour in autumn. 

Germination: Soak in water for 24 hours. Cold stratify for 30 days. Plant 1-2cm deep in a sterile potting medium.

Each packet contains 25+ seeds
