Red Maple – Acer rubrum

(40 seeds)

$4.35

Neat shade tree with wonderful,deep scarlet autumn foliage.

Grown mainly for its foliage colour, this species does well as a bonsai. A fast grower when young, with strong wood and attractive bark, this species takes well to regular pruning and leaf size can be reduced through leaf stripping every three years - an absolute winner all year round!

Propagation

Also referred to as the Swamp Maple, this species is one of the most widely distributed trees in North America being found from Quebec down to near Miami.
