Height: 50 feet

Spread: 30 feet

Sunlight:  full sun 

Hardiness Zone: 3

Description:

One of the very hardiest red fall-coloring shade trees available, this hybrid maple features a uniform branching habit and attractive pyramidal-oval shape; tolerant of alkaline, acidic and wet soil conditions, stronger wood than other hybrids

Ornamental Features:

Sienna Glen Maple has green foliage throughout the season. The lobed leaves turn an outstanding red in the fall. It features showy red flowers along the branches in early spring before the leaves. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The furrowed gray bark and brick red branches add an interesting dimension to the landscape.

Landscape Attributes:

Sienna Glen Maple is a deciduous tree with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and should only be pruned in summer after the leaves have fully developed, as it may 'bleed' sap if pruned in late winter or early spring. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Sienna Glen Maple is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Shade
  • Accent

Plant Characteristics:

Sienna Glen Maple will grow to be about 50 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 30 feet. It has a high canopy with a typical clearance of 7 feet from the ground, and should not be planted underneath power lines. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 70 years or more.

This tree should only be grown in full sunlight. It is an amazingly adaptable plant, tolerating both dry conditions and even some standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments.

This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
