Scientific Name: Acer x freemanii ‘Jeffsred’
The autumn blaze maple is a cultivar (selectively bred lineage) that descends from a cross between the red and silver maple. It is one of the most popular hybrid maples within the US, Australia, and New Zealand. This is because it is much more drought-tolerant than red or silver maples and displays fantastic autumn colors. It won the 2004 Urban Tree of the Year Award.
