Planting & Growing

Red November Amur Maple will grow to be about 18 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 24 feet.

It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 60 years or more.

This tree does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions.
