Buy Acer rubrum red maple: Superb red autumn foliage

This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moisture-retentive, well-drained neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Tiny clusters of red flowers in spring are closely followed by the emergence of deeply lobed, dark green leaves, which turn brilliant red in autumn before being shed. This beautiful, round-headed, red maple makes an excellent ornamental feature in a large garden. Although the tree tolerates some lime, the best autumn leaf colour is achieved when it is grown on fertile, moisture-retentive, neutral to acid soil in full sun.

  • Garden care: Add a top-dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser around the base of the plant in late spring. No routine pruning is required, just remove any dead, damaged or crossing branches in late autumn or winter when they are fully dormant.
