Acer rubrum (Red Maple)
Habit: Red Maple is a medium to large sized tree that is an excellent specimen for a yard, garden, street planting, or for a naturalization/restoration project. Red Maple grows quickly but still manages to create strong branches and a beautiful growth habit.
Color: Absolutely wonderful in fall. There is incredible variation within the species- some trees turn red, others yellow, and some orange. In addition to the beautiful leaves, Red Maple also has beautiful gray bark in wintertime and small (but very showy!) red flowers in the spring. All year long this tree gives and gives.
Culture: Can easily be transplanted and is very adaptable to soil types and growing conditions. In nature its range varies from murky swamps to the dry foothills of the mountains. Easily one of the most popular trees in our inventory.
