Royal Red Maple

The Royal Red Maple, Acer platanoides 'Royal Red', is a Norway Maple selection that is similar to 'Crimson King', but with a somewhat slower growth rate, and what some consider, slightly better color.  'Royal Red' is also less vigorous and less prone to frost cracks.  

A dense shade tree, it has a straight trunk with a well-shaped canopy, and it has a crown which is originally conical before becoming broadly round. The glossy foliage is an excellent maroon red all season.  

It is heat tolerant and moderately drought resistant once established.  Plant this tree in full sun to partial shade in average well-drained soil.  'Royal Red' Maple is adaptable to various soil conditions and is great as a shade or specimen tree.  It does well in most soil types and tolerates air pollution.

One of the finest of the Red Maples, it has a sturdy straight trunk and is free from disease!  A well shaped, symmetrical tree 'Royal Red' Maple has superb color: bright maroon color all summer and yellowish brown color in the fall!
