Amur Maple – Acer ginnala

Location: 7399 Pershing under the wires on Jackson

Amur maple is a deciduous 15 – 20 feet tall tree or shrub which makes it a good choice to plant under wires as was done here, so as to avoid pruning in the future. It produces small clusters of fragrant yellowish-white flowers, which in turn produce two-winged samaras in fall. The leaves are 3-lobed and turn red in the fall.
