Acer rubrum Armstrong Gold® PP25301

Maple - Red

Armstrong Gold® ('JFS-KW78') Columnar Red Maple comes from the extensive selection work done at J Frank Schmidt's nursery in Oregon.  Acer rubrum Armstrong Gold® has bright golden orange fall foliage on a very tight upright form.  Besides having good tolerance for a wide range of environmental conditions (as do Red Maples in general), Armstrong Gold® makes an excellent street tree because of the dense columnar form.  The tiny red flowers appear in April and are followed by red winged samaras (seeds).
