acer freemanii ‘sienna’

Sienna Glen Maple – Acer Freemanii Sienna

sienna glen maple - acer freemanii sienna

Acer freemanii Sienna, commonly known as Sienna Glen Maple, is a hybrid tree resulting from the cross between red maple (Acer rubrum) and silver maple (Acer saccharinum). This deciduous maple combines the best features of both parents: solid structure, attractive form, and showy fall color. It graces landscapes with its ascending branches and ense, broad-oval crown. The medium green leaves are deeply cut into five pointed lobes. In autumn, the foliage transforms into a blaze of orange-red to burgundy hues. While flowers and fruit are sparse, the striking fall color compensates for it. This cultivar was discovered by nurseryman Glenn Jeffers in the late 1960s.

Height: Typically grows 40-50 feet.

Width: 35-40 feet.

Light Exposure: Prefers full sun.

Fruit and Flower Type: Sparse flowers.

Fall Color: The foliage undergoes a stunning transformation in mid-autumn. Leaves turn brilliant orange-red to scarlet-red.

Watering Requirements: Requires medium to wet soils with good drainage.

Fertilization: Regular fertilization benefits this fast-growing maple.

Pruning: Annual pruning ensures optimal growth and form.

Consider planting alongside other trees or ornamental shrubs. Its vibrant fall color makes it an excellent specimen for lawns, streets, or parks. Keep an eye out for potential pests such as leafhoppers and scale to maintain its health and vigor.
