Product Description

Stunning Cardinal Reds, Even in Spring!

Why Cardinal Red™ Maple Trees?

Without a doubt, you’re going to be impressed by the breathtaking reds that the Cardinal Red™ Maple has to offer. The autumn show will dazzle you with bright red-orange and maroon colors.

And you’ll get those breathtaking fall colors early...colors that also last the entire season. But remarkably, fall isn’t the only time you’ll see stunning cardinal reds. New growth in early spring starts out red and eventually turns into deep green.

And it’s not just the reds that will impress you:

  • Virtually carefree growth: No diseases or pests means no maintenance!
  • Soil adaptability: Plant it in nearly any soil condition, and you’ll still get stunning reds.
  • Versatility: Adaptable to zones 4 through 8, the Cardinal Red™ Maple is a great addition to any yard.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

Aside from the Cardinal's upright growth, rounded canopy, and classic maple leaf shape, it's a timeless addition to your yard because of its strong beginnings. Since we've planted, grown and nurtured your Cardinal from day one, you get a more well-developed root system and lusher long-term growth...all without any hassle on your part.

You’ll reap the rewards of our hard work at the nursery and love the mesmerizing colors of spring, the peaceful shade of summer, and the breathtaking reds of autumn. Get the effortlessly elegant Cardinal Red™ Maple Tree today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: The Cardinal Maple can be planted in any soil condition, though it naturally grows in soggy bottomlands. It can tolerate full sun or partial shade (but prefers 4 to 8 hours of sunlight daily). Plant in a hole twice as wide, though just as deep as the root ball. Mulch around the canopy, but not near the trunk, to help the tree maintain moisture. Plant your Maples with some spacing from power lines, structures, sidewalks and sewer lines.

2. Watering: Be sure to water the tree weekly in its young life to ensure proper growth. If you live in an area with frequent droughts, you may need to water weekly throughout its life.

3. Pruning: If you live in an area with windy conditions, hurricanes, ice storms, or salty air, you'll need to prune your tree in the early spring to prevent limb breakage. Prune the weakest branches, including any dead or diseased branches.

Red Cardinal Maples

My maples were well packaged and in great shape. Only been in the ground a couple of weeks but so far they are doing well. Looking forward to seeing them in full color.

Very impressed with quality and service!

Red Cardinal Maple tree was a birthday gift for long-time friend and neighbor to replace a maple destroyed by derecho storm in Iowa in August. We look forward to shade gracing his yard and colors all during the year.

So pretty

Came in straight and true and without damage. We'll see what spring brings.
