Acer rubrum 'Red Sunset' is an ornamental cultivar of red maple, considered one of the best for early fall color. A fast-growing tree, 'Red Sunset' can grow to 40-50' tall at maturity, and produces glossy green leaves in the spring and summer months, which turn to striking shades red-orange and scarlet when temperatures begin to cool.

A good choice for use as a stand-out shade tree in parks or large yards, Acer rubrum also attracts a number of insects and bird species through the year, which makes it an ecologically valuable addition to any landscape.

Marylanders Plant Trees

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:

"We launched Marylanders Plant Trees in 2009 to encourage citizens and organizations to partner with the State to plant new trees. Today, citizens can still take advantage of our coupon program to receive $25 off the purchase of a native tree at 86 participating nurseries across the State. The State cost of $20 per coupon is funded through a settlement from a major power generator for Clean Air Act violations, in partnership with the Office of the Attorney General, and Maryland’s participating tree vendors are generously absorbing the remaining $5.

Trees must be planted in the state of Maryland to qualify for $25 off coupon.
Wholesale customers do not qualify.
