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.

It took a long time to arrive because of the coronavirus the leaves were all bad . We’re hopping it makes it. We will see I not sure how long it takes for it to start new growth.
Great experience. The drop in burlap bag is awesome.
Purchased the tree on May 5th, to replace one that did not survive. Today May 22 the tree arrived, very well packaged and in good shape..All ready planted in the ground..So far pleased with my purchase and looking forward to see how it grows...
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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
