A showy specimen or shade tree, especially in the fall, 'Sun Valley' red maple is a fast-growing tree with an upright oval growth habit, developed as a hybrid of two other showy red maples, 'Red Sunset' and 'Autumn Flame,' and as a result the fall foliage is absolutely stunning in a variety of fiery reds. Rounded upright shape and tolerance of cold, wet roots, and a variety of soil conditions makes 'Sun Valley' a great choice for a lot of landscapes, and compact spreading

Acer rubrum is a fast growing tree, and 'Sun Valley' typically grows to 30-35' tall at maturity, which may only take about 20 years. In spring, 'Sun Valley' produces small, nondescript flowers in shades of red and green, which turn to winged seeds in the summer and fall. Seed pods and flower buds are attractive to many species of birds, which also eat the caterpillars and other insects that feed on and live in red maples.

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.
