Growing & Maintenance Tips for Acer x freemanii 'Jeffersred'

A cross between silver maple and red maple, freemanii cultivars are faster growing, and change colour in the fall earlier than rubrum cultivars.  'Jeffersred' is quite adaptable, tolerant of drought conditions, and is not particular to soil type or pH. It can be grown as a specimen tree or multi-stemmed plant.
