Dazzling Color Arrives Earlier & Lasts Longer

Why Red Sunset ® Maple Trees?

Delivering outstanding red and orange color weeks earlier than other varieties, the Red Sunset® is one of the best maples on the market. This tree’s deep, dazzling red hues can develop almost one month before other similar varieties, giving you longer-lasting fall color.

The Red Sunset ® displays rich, vivid color where other maples can't. Whether you're in a cold climate with temperatures down to -20 degrees or a hot, dry desert up to zone 9, you get the promise of intense color. The Red Sunset® is much more drought-resistant than other varieties too, so it keeps on looking great despite little water. Plus, its strong branching stands up to high winds and intense storms with ease.

Nothing can stop the Red Sunset® from displaying its vivid range of bright hues. Plant your Red Sunset® Maple along the road’s edge, in borders, or as an ornamental that stands on its own. No matter where it grows, the Red Maple puts on a show and transforms your landscape into the best yard on the block.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: First, choose a full to partial sun location for your Red Sunset®. Any area with a maximum of 6 hours of direct sunlight, some afternoon shade, and well-drained soil is best.

Dig a hole deep enough to cover your tree's root ball. After placing your tree, tamp down the soil while backfilling to avoid air pockets in the area. Water your tree to settle the soil that surrounds the roots, and ensure it is planted several feet away from structures and power lines.

2. Watering: Simply water your Red Sunset® Maple during dry spells for the first few years. Generally, it will thrive on rainfall alone.

3. Pruning: When you’re ready to prune your tree, do so in late winter before its buds break. Prune away dead or damaged branches back to the nearest healthy bud at any time of year.

Terrific Tree so far!

Tree came quickly and packaged well. Very tall but with not many leaves. Planted it the next day and the leaves perked up and more appeared in just a few days! Can’t wait to see it in a few months!

Very Happy!

So far they are doing great. They were shipped in a very sturdy box and already had little buds started on a couple of branches. A couple branches had some minor damage, but nothing major, they already have a few small leaves. Hopefully they grow fast!
