Fireglo™Amur Maple -- Acer tataricum ssp. ginnala ‘Superglobe' (RFM-52)
A selection made from a seedling population grown from seed originally received from the Morden Research Center, Morden, Manitoba. After 30 years, plants are only 9 1/2 feet tall, averaging only 3 inches of new growth per year. Foliage quality is very good and plant form is a near perfect, rounded mound, self-facing to ground level. The plant is extremely dense, and fall color is a blazing scarlet red annually. This cultivar is superior in NDSU evaluations to comercial cultivars currently in the nursery trade. The schizocarps (seeds) are also reddish for several weeks, another ornamental attribute. This dwarf, tailored cultivar would be a welcome addition in a wide variety of landscape settings, and is very hardy and adaptable to stressful conditions. Propagated by softwood cuttings. Nursery propagation is encouraged.
