|Care||Provide slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Best color in full sun, but tolerates light shade.

Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
|Lore||Acer x freemannii is a hybrid from Acer rubrum and Acer saccharinum parentage. Although natural hybridization does occur between these two species, Oliver Freeman pioneered their controlled breeding in the first half of the 20th of the century.|
