Acer buergerianum 'ABMTF' PP16,629

Aeryn® Trident Maple

A good cultivar of Trident Maple (Acer buergerianum), the widely popular small street, lawn, and patio tree. Aeryn® is a good looking selection from veteran nurseryman, Dwayne Moon. Nice fall color includes reds, yellows and orange rather than the purple-red typical of Tridents. Uniformity is insured through own-root propagation.
