The Q&A Archives: Autumn Blaze Maple

Question: Would Autumn Blaze be a suitable tree for a parking lot in Houston, Texas. I am hearing that it is an excellent performer alittle more North, but how about here in Houston????
Thanks for your help

Answer: Dustin,

You are on the southern end of its zone. It can be grown in your area, but you need to provide a well drained soil location and keep the roots mulched. Also be aware that your fall weather that far south won't provide the color potential that folks farther north can enjoy.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
