It is best to select a tree that you are growing for fall color in the autumn so that you will be assured of the color. 'Flame' is a seed grown cultivar of the Amur Maple so there can variability in fall and fruit color. There is a good chance that your tree will never produce the fiery red fall color that the cultivar is noted for.
