Autumn Blaze Maples - Knowledgebase Question

Question by dustincaldw

I am interested in purchasing the Autumn Blaze Maple. I wanted to know if this tree produces the 'helicopers' that typical maples produce? If they don't, do they drop anything? I looked for the answer on the tag of the tree, and didn't find anything on this topic.
Thank you for your help. I looked on the 'searching FAQ's' and didn't find an answer to my question.

Poplar Farms which brought this tree into development after it was patented, describes it as nearly seedless although it is a female clone. Here is their write up about it when it was named the 2004 Urban Tree of the Year.

As you can see, it has a lot going for it. Apart from a few seeds (samaras) it will also drop all of its leaves each fall. I hope this answers your question.
