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.

Great product. Doing great.

I actually left the tree in the enclosed bag for 1 week inside my home. I finally got around to planting it. That was 4 weeks ago and the tree is doing great. Already showing new growth. Couldn't be happier with the purchase.

Red Maples

Ordered 2 , 5-6ft sunset maples. Both arrived well packaged with nice roots!! Looking a little rough after planting. Maybe they're just having a hard time with adjusting to the soil and different temps up North. Hoping they acclimate well to our Montana weather.

Red Sunset Maple

The Red Maple arrived in great condition. A deer got some lower leaves the first night! I caged it the next day and have had no issues since. Will be a perfect replacement for a tree taken by storm about 3 years ago!
