Gorgeous in every season, the Red Sunset® Maple’s deep, dazzling red hues develop weeks before other similar varieties, giving you longer-lasting fall color. This tree looks great all year-round, producing small, red-and-yellow flowers in spring, medium-to-dark green leaves in summer, and spectacular, fire-engine red foliage in autumn.

Offers an impressive spread of shade and can grow just about anywhere! Red maple trees do not have as high of sugar content as the Sugar and Black maples, but this tree makes quality syrup!

This cold-hardy tree thrives in many conditions and matures to be 50' tall when in full sun.
