Red Sunset® Maple
The Red Sunset Maple tree, Acer rubrum, is considered one of the best trees for early
fall color. This is a large deciduous tree that has pyramidal form when young becoming
rounded with age. Glossy green leaves turn brilliant orange-scarlet, extremely showy. Full
sun. Grows faster than Norway and sugar maples, but slower than silver maple.

The Red Sunset's leaves are shiny green above and pale green beneath, 3-5 lobed and 3-6"
across. Species name of rubrum (meaning red) is everywhere in evidence: red flowers in
dense clusters in late March to early April (before the leaves appear), red fruit (reddish
two-winged samara), reddish stems and twigs. The Red Sunset is one of the best red maple
cultivars available in commerce, with outstanding orange to red fall color.


Highly rated and reliable,
Red Sunset® has become the standard to which others are
compared. Developed by J. Frank Schmidt, Jr., it's a vigorous growing tree with a strong and
symmetrical branching pattern. Lustrous, glossy green summer foliage changes to brilliant
shades of red and orange-red in the fall.    
Hardy in zones 3 to 8
