`Armstrong' Red Maple is a fast-growing, upright tree, reaching a height of 40 to 50 feet with a
10 to 18 foot spread, and has very attractive silver-grey bark. Trees are often shorter in the
southern part of its range. This tree is preferred over columnar Sugar Maple or columnar Norway
Maple because it much more vigorous and tolerates heat better. The newly emerging leaves and
red flowers and fruits signal that spring has come. They appear in December and January in Florida,
later in the northern part of its range. The seeds of Red Maple are quite popular with squirrels and
birds. `Armstrong' Red Maple has nice red, orange, or yellow fall color lasting several weeks and is
often one of the first trees to color up in autumn.

Armstrong red maple is a fast-growing, upright tree, reaching a height of 40 to
50 feet with a 10 to 18 foot spread, and has very attractive silver-gray bark.
Planting Zones 4 to 9
As a columnar deciduous tree, this maple is thought of as a hybrid between red and silver maple. Its
leaves are 5-lobed and deeply cut, with more of the leaf shape associated with silver maple. Leaf
margins are incised, and serrated. Over-all the leaves appear star shaped. They are 2”-4” in diameter.
Red spring flowers give rise to samara seed pods in the fall. Fall color is not as good as true red maples
cultivars, such as the ever popular ‘Red Sunset’.
The narrow spread of Armstrong maple makes it suitable for areas with limited horizontal space such
as a planting site close to a building, or in narrow planting strips between streets and sidewalks. As
with red maples, this variant can withstand wet soils.
