· Bright Red Tone Shines in the Landscape!
· Grows Rapidly, Giving You Shade Quickly
· A Popular Shade Tree, Easy and Colorful
People love this tree for its vivid fall colors! The Red Maple truly earns its name with its red flowers in early spring, red twigs of new growth, red fruit and spectacular red leaves in fall! It even has some interesting variability in the fall coloring, with some individuals assuming orange or even gold shades under certain weather conditions.
One of the Most Adaptable trees in North America! The Red Maple is becoming the most populous tree in the eastern U.S. because it adapts so well to so many different environments. It is quite drought tolerant, but also will grow in wet boggy areas, especially in the southern portion of its range; it grow in most any soil type, from sandy loam to heavy clay and everything in between; it even tolerates pollution and an urban environment, though leaf color is often less brilliant.
Makes a great shade tree, too! It grows to a mid-sized to large tree, and it does it rapidly, adding 2 to 3 feet of growth each year. Its dense foliage and rapid growth make it an excellent choice for a shade tree near a deck or on the south or west side of a house. Not only will it provide excellent protection from the summer sun, but it will give you a brilliant show in fall to enjoy, before dropping its leaves to let the winter sun come through.
