Named after the Tatar people of southern Russia, Acer tataruicum subsp. ginnala is versatile and visually appealing tree valued for its ornamental characteristics, adaptability and low maintenance requirements. Commonly known as Amur maple, the Ginnala is native to the regions of eastern Asia, particularly Siberia, Mongolia and northern China.

The foliage of the Amur Maple help to distinguish it from other maples. They are narrow with three shallow lobes, and are typically a glossy green colour during summer. These will turn different hues of red, orange and yellow in autumn. Fragrant panicle flowers, pale-yellow, and loved by bees will emerge in late spring. These are followed by red winged keys which are ready to germinate and be distributed long distances by the wind.

One of the notable features of Amur maple is its adaptability to various soil types and climatic conditions. It can thrive in both full sun and partial shade, and is tolerant of cold temperatures making it suitable for colder regions. It makes a great street tree as it is resistant to salt, wind and air pollution and is relatively drought tolerant once established.
