Acer rubrum Redpointe® is a showy red maple cultivar noted for its brilliant, bright red autumn foliage and elegant, upright, pyramidal form. Similar to other red maples, Redpointe® is a fast grower and can grow up to 45' tall with a spread of about 30 feet, which it maintains in a tidy conical or pyramidal form over its lifetime.

Redpointe® likes full sun, and is tolerant of a wide variety of soil types as well as wet soils, making it a great choice for a variety of locations around the home, especially if you have a large, sunny yard in need of shade or are looking to start a mixed forest planting. Acer rubrum is also a host plant for a number of caterpillar species like the Rosy Maple Moth and Cecropia Moth and these insects, alongside the winged samara-type seed pods that maples are famous for, attract a number of birds to the summer and fall gardens.

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.
