Red Maple Tree 

 Acer rubrics a classic American native species that Wholesale Nursery Co. customers can't get enough of! These beautiful, tall shade trees are indigenous to the east coast and central plains. They grow well in USDA plant hardiness zones 3 through 9 and prefer a sunny or filtered sunshine location.

Besides the handsome looks, gardeners like the growth habit of this tree, which adds about a foot or two annually and forms a gentle, well-shaped crown without pruning. The tallest red maple tree on record was 120 feet; however, they generally grow to an average of eighty feet with a forty to fifty-foot crown.

The Red Maple Tree Gives You a Long Season of Beauty

A mature red maple tree will produce small, attractive clusters of sweetly-scented red flowers in early spring. The leaves emerge in the spring in a medium-dark green tone but enrich to a darker green in the summer.

Once full-grown, it produces lovely clusters of pleasantly-scented dark red flowers in the spring. The early spring leaves are dark green, deepening to a dark emerald later. Leaves are three-lobed and impressive in size. The canopy will transform from green to a ruby tone in the late summer.

Acer Rubrum Is a Hardy Species

Setting aside its striking looks, the red maple tree is a hardy and resilient species. Once it matures, it is tolerant of drought but also tolerates occasional flooding--as long as the roots can dry out between flood cycles.

It's also disease-resistant, pest-resistant, and deer-resistant. This resilience makes growing it a good experience for gardeners, from beginners to experts.

Red maple

So far so good. I planted them in late February. For Texas that’s right before spring time weather. I have no clue if they will do much or show growth this Spring/Summer, but they were alive and looked good when I got them. I’m hopeful they will work out for the long haul.

Thank you for the fantastic review, Dennis. We are thrilled to hear that you are enjoying our plants!
