|Sienna Glen Maple
Acer x freemanii 'Sienna'
The Sienna Glen Maple tree is a naturally occurring hybrid found on an abandoned farmstead in Lake Elmo, Minnesota. Its distinct, upright, pyramidal growth habit, which is readily apparent as a young tree, grows and becomes a broad pyramid when mature. The Sienna Glen exhibits vigorous growth yet withstands strong winds. The branches are borne more closely together along the trunk (than those of Autumn Blaze) and are finer and more delicate, yet the wood is harder and shorter and exhibit less drooping. The smaller, fine textured green leaves are dark green with a silvery underside and turn a variable mix of yellow and orange with a pinkish tinge at the highest part of the crown. As the fall color finishes, it turns a burnt orange. This beauty tolerates higher soil pH unlike Autumn Blaze, not exhibiting any chlorosis. Hardiness zone 4 (testing done in zone 3). Mature growth is around 60' tall x 40' wide.
Height: 15 m
Crown: pyramidal to broad pyramidal, dark, dense crown
Bark and branches: smooth, grey-brown
Leaf: 3 to 5 lobes, shiny, bright green with light red stem, 8-10 cm
Autumn color: orange, red
Flowers: reddish flower corymbs, female flowers, March/April
Fruits: single seeds, winged, always in pairs, few or entirely absent,
Toxicity: non-toxic (usually)
Soil type: any, but not too limy
Paving: tolerates paving
Winter hardiness zone: 4 (-34,4 to -28,9 °C)
Wind resistance: good
Fauna tree: valuable for butterflies
Application: avenues and broad streets, parks, squares, theme parks, cemeteries, large gardens||Malus 'JFS-KW5' ROYAL RAINDROPS
Common Name: flowering crabapple | Type: Tree
Family: Rosaceae | Zone: 4 to 8
Height: 15.00 to 20.00 feet | Spread: 12.00 to 16.00 feet
Bloom Time: April | Bloom Description: Magenta-pink
Sun: Full sun | Water: Medium
Maintenance: Low | Suggested Use: Flowering Tree
Flower: Showy | Leaf: Colorful, Good Fall
Attracts: Birds, Butterflies | Fruit: Showy, Edible
Other: Winter Interest | Tolerate: Clay Soil, Air Pollution
Best grown in medium moisture, well-drained, acidic loams in full sun. Adapts to a wide range of soils. Established trees have some drought tolerance. Although some flowers may be lost, it is best to prune this tree as needed in late winter. Spring pruning should be avoided as it produces fresh, open cuts where fireblight bacterium can enter.
Malus is a genus of about 35 species of deciduous trees and shrubs from Europe, Asia and North America.
Genus name from Latin is an ancient name for apple.
‘JFS-KW5’, commonly sold under the trade name of ROYAL RAINDROPS, is an upright-spreading , disease-resistant, easy-to-grow, crabapple tree that features (1) deeply lobed purple foliage (early leaves may be entire) which retains excellent color throughout summer, (2) magenta-pink single flowers in spring (April in St. Louis), (3) tiny maroon-red crabapples (1/4" diameter) that mature in late summer and (4) excellent orange-red fall color. This small tree typically matures to 15-20’ tall and to 12-16' wide with a dense rounded canopy and excellent foliage density. Crabapples persist on the tree into early winter and are an attractive food source for birds. 'JFS-KW5' is an open-pollinated seedling of Malus transitoria 'Schmidtcutleaf'. U.S. Plant Patent PP14,375 was issued on December 16, 2003.
The main diseases of crabapple are scab, fire blight, rusts, leaf spot and powdery mildew. Potential insect pests are of lesser concern and include tent caterpillars, aphids, Japanese beetles, borers and scale. Spider mites may occur.
ROYAL RAINDROPS has good disease resistance to the main diseases of crabapples.||Firefall™ Maple
Acer x freemanii 'Firefall'
Firefall™ has an upright-oval form with good branch angles. This selection is male and therefore does not produce nuisance seeds. The foliage is an attractive medium green throughout the summer. Fall color is bright orange to scarlet and develops fairly early. This is a distinct advantage over some existing Freeman maple cultivars that color later and often do not develop much color in northern regions before freezing temperatures cause the foliage tomdrop.

Acer x freemanii, commonly called Freeman maple, is a hybrid of red maple (A. rubrum) and silver maple (A. saccharinum). The Freeman maple cultivars commonly sold in commerce today reportedly combine some of the best features of both parents, namely, solid structure, attractive form and showy fall color (from red maple) and adaptability and rapid growth (from silver maple). Oliver M. Freeman of the National Arboretum made the first controlled crosses between red maple and silver maple in 1933. Edward Murray named this hybrid cross in 1969 in honor of Oliver M. Freeman. Notwithstanding the foregoing, crosses between red and silver maples occur not only by controlled propagation but also naturally in the wild. It is sometimes difficult to identify a Freeman hybrid because of the complexity of crosses and backcrosses that may occur.
Cultivars are sometimes listed for sale by nurseries under Acer rubrum instead of Acer x freemanii.
Genus name is the Latin name for a maple tree.
Specific epithet and common name honors Oliver Freeman who first grew A. x freemani at the U. S. National Arboretum in 1933.
‘Jeffersred’, sold under the trade name of AUTUMN BLAZE, is an older cultivar that was discovered by nurseryman Glenn Jeffers in the late 1960s. This is an upright, fast-growing, deciduous tree that will typically grow 40-55’ tall with ascending branching and a dense, broad-oval crown. Each medium green leaf is deeply cut with five pointed lobes. As the trade name suggests, the foliage turns into an autumn blaze of orange-red to scarlet-red fall color. Flowers and fruit for this hybrid are very sparse. U.S. Plant Patent PP04,864 issued July 6, 1982.
No serious insect or disease problems. Young plants susceptible to leafhoppers and scale. Borers.||Malus x ‘Red Jewel’
‘Red Jewel’ Crabapple
The Red Jewel Crabapple is a beautiful white flowering crab. It is smothered in stunning fragrant white flowers in mid spring. With its compact shape this crab tree is great in any landscape.
