`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.
