Planting & Care
Your Amur Flame Maple will grow in any spot in your yard that gets full sun or partial shade, but more sun will produce brighter colors in the fall. This tree is also adaptable to all pH levels and most soil types except finely textured soils like clay. Amur Flame Maples do not like excessive water, so be sure to plant in a spot that is very well draining. Plant in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball, like below:
Watering: Water deeply after planting to establish the roots. You won't need to water your tree again after this. If you experience severe drought in the first year, you can water weekly to help it establish, but even this is unnecessary.
Maintenance: There is not additional maintenance needed for your Amur Flame Maple. You can prune it down to any size you like, and you can also prune away stems to create a single-stemmed tree. Again, this is unnecessary, and only dependent on your preferences.
