This Red Maple tree works well for adding four-season interest to your yard. The reddish color is not only evident in fall, but also in the spring flowers and stems that are reddish in winter. If you're hoping for a tree with bright foliage, March to May, small red flowers appear. The reddish "helicopter" fruit/seed pods appear in early spring before leaves flesh out
The leaves are two to five inches long, with the classic 3- to 5-lobed structure common to maples. As they first unfurl in spring the leaves have reddish highlights, changing to green as they open. Unlike silver maples, the spaces between lobes on red maples are relatively shallow in depth. The leaves are dark green on the top, with grayish bottom surfaces. Leaf margins are toothed, with pointed tips.
Most varieties turn a bright crimson red in fall, but some cultivars exhibit orange or yellow autumn foliage. Maturity 40-60 ft tall. Grows well in both sandy or clay soil. Adapts well to different climates.
