A very desirable cultivar of the red maple with a pronounced pyramidal form and reliable red fall color; distinctive form and rich colors make this a choice shade tree, ideal for larger landscapes; intolerant of alkaline soils
Red Sunset® Red Maple is primarily valued in the landscape for its distinctively pyramidal habit of growth. It features showy clusters of red flowers along the branches in early spring before the leaves. It has green deciduous foliage which emerges red in spring. The lobed leaves turn an outstanding red in the fall. The furrowed silver bark and brick red branches add an interesting dimension to the landscape.
