Red Sunset® Red Maple
Acer rubrum 'Franksred'
|Description||Considered one of the best for early fall color! The glossy green leaves provide a very dynamic show, as they turn a brilliant orange-scarlet when temperatures begin to cool. This large deciduous tree has a pyramidal form when young that becomes rounded with age. A wonderful choice for use as a high profile shade tree in larger landscapes.|
|Watering||Keep soil consistently moist but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 40 to 50 ft. tall, 30 to 35 ft. wide.|
|Care||Provide slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Best color in full sun, but tolerates light shade. Water deeply and regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; prefers regular moisture but tolerates drier soils. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
