Stunning Red Display

Red Sunset is a type of Red Maple tree with stunning color. Plant one as a focal point in your front yard, or place one in sight of a window where it can draw your eye to its brilliant fall color.

Your Red Sunset Maple is one of the very best cultivars ever for fall color! In fact, red is the dominant word when describing Red Sunset. Even the new growth leaves and twigs are tinted red before the star-shaped, glossy leaves mature.

Red buds appear amid the branches before the foliage appears and open into tight clusters of red flowers in late winter/early spring. Next,two-winged samara develop and even they initially have a reddish hue.

When fall arrives, prepare yourself for one of the most spectacular autumn displays you’ll ever witness. Your Red Sunset Maple is at its best in the fall, when it’s resplendent in brilliant shades of orange and red. Like a glowing flame amid the lesser autumn colors, Red Sunset clearly presents a superior fall display!

Red Sunset Maple is a deciduous tree growing to 60 feet in height with an equal spread. It starts off life with a pyramidal shape that quickly rounds out with age.

It’s a fast-growing tree but still has very strong wood. There are no significant disease or insect issues with Red Sunset, and it’s even moderately drought-tolerant.

This variety of Red Maple is clearly an outstanding choice for any landscape. Tall and strong with brilliant color and adorable samara (“heliocopters”),Red Sunset Maple is an obvious choice for almost any home.
