Burgundy Belle® Maple
The Burgundy Belle® Maple, Acer rubrum 'Magnificent Magenta' (PP7,222), is a new cultivar from Earl Cully, selected in Kansas.
The fall color is especially nice, with the leaves initially turning a brilliant red and then changing to an intense burgundy. These vibrant, almost fluorescent, burgundy red leaves glow in the autumn sunlight and holds for a long period of time.
With an excellent symmetrical branching habit, this is a great choice for street plantings and small landscapes. Burgundy Belle® Maple also exhibits excellent heat and drought tolerance. It is best to train to a central leader when the tree is young. Remove dead or undesirable branches and remove low hanging branches as tree matures.
The parent tree has attained a height of 45 feet and forms a compact, well-shaped, and symmetrical crown. It is a great choice for harsher climates as well as mild sheltered locations.
Quickly becoming a favorite in the landscaping business, the positive traits of Burgundy Belle® Maple make it a superior tree for landscaping in small urban settings!
