Acer rubrum Redpointe® is a red maple cultivar noted for its brilliant, bright red autumn foliage and elegant, upright, pyramidal form. In the springtime, the Redpointe® maple produces dark green leaves with silvery veins and undersides which turn to striking shades of bright brick red in cooler weather.

Redpointe® likes full sun, but is tolerant of a wide variety of soil types as well as wet soils, and can grow up to 45' high with spread of up to 30' in a relatively neat pyramid or ovular form. Acer rubrum is also a host plant for a number of caterpillar species which, alongside seeds, attract a number of birds to the summer and fall garden.

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.
