- Vigorous growth
- Pyramidal habit
- Cold hardy
The Sienna Glen® Maple, Acer freemanni, is a naturally occurring hybrid found on an abandoned farmstead in Lake Elmo, Minnesota!
It has a distinct, upright, pyramidal growth habit which is readily apparent as a young tree, and becomes a broad pyramid when mature. Sienna exhibits vigorous growth and the branches are borne close together, fine textured, and delicate. It features showy red flowers along the branches in early spring before the leaves appear.
The wood is harder, stouter and exhibits less drooping. The smaller, finer texture dark-green leaves have a silvery underside. The fall color is a mix of yellow, orange and red, and Sienna Glen® is one of the very hardiest red fall-coloring shade trees available!
A Dennis Heins introduction, Sienna Glen® Maple is used by landscape architects because of its broad pyramidal form, fine texture and interesting fall coloration. It is a reliable and useful choice with its natural form, hardiness, adaptability to a variety of soil conditions, and low maintenance!
