The Autumn Blaze Maple has become one of the most popular hybrids of a Red maple (Acer rubrum) and Silver Leaf Maple (Acer saccharinum) and this particular hybrid was discovered by Glenn Jeffers in the 1960’s. Prior that that, Oliver Freeman had pioneered the first controlled crosses between the Red Maple and Silver Leaf Maple in 1933 and in honor of him all of these hybrids were given the scientific name Acer x freemanii. The Autumn Blaze combines some of the best features from both parents with beautiful fall color from the Red Maple and the fast growth from the Silver Leaf Maple. Autumn Blaze have a densely oval to rounded canopy and dependable fall color. Autumn Blaze Maples produce small red flowers and samaras (helicopter seeds) in the spring before the buds appear. When the star shaped leaves emerge on an October Glory Maple they are tinged with red and then develop into a medium green color. In the fall October Glory Maples produce a deep orange to red fall color that persists into November. Autumn Blaze also have winter interest because the new branch growth retains a red color after the leaves drop.
