23.  Freeman Maple

(Acer x freemanii ‘Autumn Blaze’)

One of the more interesting hybrids on campus is the Freeman Maple (Acer x freemanii ‘Autumn Blaze’).  This tree is a hybrid between the Silver Maple and the Red Maple and takes the best characteristics of each tree.

The Autumn Blaze Maple at Winona State has the brilliant orange-red fall color similar to that of the Red Maple and grows faster than the Red Maple.  The Autumn Blaze Maple also has drought tplerance and the ability to grow in most soils, as does the Silver Maple.

The leaves of the Freeman Maple "Autumn Blaze" give a spectacular show in the fall and the color is long-lasting.  New growth on this tree stays red even after the leaves drop, and persists throughout winter and into spring.
