Seedless Maple Cultivars
Are there seedless Maple cultivars?
Autumn Blaze Freeman maple is listed as seedless by several experts though I have had gardeners report some seeds forming on older plants. This maple has a broad oval crown and orange-red fall color. Celebration is a male clone (means there should be no seeds) of Freeman maple with an upright oval form. This cultivar has a yellowish fall color.
Indian Summer (also sold as Morgan) develops a good bright rosy red fall color fairly early in the season. It grows vigorously and develops an oval to rounded crown with no seeds.
Autumn Spire red maple is a University of Minnesota introduction and suited to both cold climates and acid soils.
McKay's Seedless silver maple is a possibility for gardeners looking for a fast growing maple. Provide proper pruning throughout the life of silver maples to extend their longevity and beauty.
