The Red Sunset® Red Maple is one of the best red maples available. Not only are its fall colors of red and orange outstanding, they do this 2 weeks earlier than all other varieties, and they stay on the tree for weeks. This is also the best variety for hot and dry locations, because it is much more drought resistant than any other red maple. A beautiful shade tree, that can grow to 40 to 50 feet tall, and up to 40 feet across, making a magnificent specimen very quickly, since it grows up to 3 feet a year. It will soon turn from a healthy young tree into a magnificent addition to your property. Plant it as a shade tree, as a background specimen in a larger garden, or as a beautiful row along the edge of your property.
