Red Sunset Maple Trees have proven to be the best cultivars of red maple for the Midwest. ‘Red Sunset’ has strong wood and is a vigorous, fast-grower, reaching a height of 50 feet with a spread of 25 to 35 feet.
This tree is preferred when a fast-growing maple is needed, and will take on a pyramidal or oval silhouette. The newly emerging red flowers and fruits signal that spring has come.
Leaves retain an attractive high gloss throughout the growing season. The seeds of ‘Red Sunset’ red maple are quite popular with squirrels and birds too.
