Red Sunset Maple provides visual interest during any season; this highly ornamental deciduous tree is favored by landscapers. The branches are adorned with beautiful, bold bunches of small red flowers in the mid-spring before its leaves come in. By mid-summer, the flowers are replaced by the bright red fruit that stands out against the shiny green leaves. The best treat it produces in the fall isn’t candy but, it’s just as sweet to the eyes with leaves brightly colored in shades of orange to red. Red Sunset Maple can grow well in full and partial sunlight and will also do great in fertile and well-drained moist soil conditions. It will also provide a spectacular array of color during the autumn months. The stunning look of the tree doesn’t end during winter time; Once the foliage has fallen, left exposed are its reddish limbs. These are great to provide lots of shade on those hot and humid summer days and evenings. They look amazing as they grow and become healthy and also works great to bring in lots of much-needed curb appeal for lawns. These trees are beautiful and definitely can become the focal point on a garden as they display their vibrant colors and beauty. They work great with large or small yards and also with all types of landscaping projects.
