Amur Maple – Acer ginnala

gold line

This native of Asia has fragrant flowers and attractive red-orange fall color. Its small size and

hardiness make it a good choice for planting in containers. However, because it is listed as a

potentially persistent  colonizer on disturbed lands in Missouri, we plant a similar species,

Acer tataricum, instead.
