Planting & Growing

Crimson Sunset® Maple will grow to be about 40 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 25 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 2 feet from the ground, and should not be planted underneath power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 60 years or more.

This tree does best in full sun to partial shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.

Landscape Attributes

Crimson Sunset® Maple is a deciduous tree with a shapely oval form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and should only be pruned in summer after the leaves have fully developed, as it may 'bleed' sap if pruned in late winter or early spring. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Crimson Sunset®: Maple is recommended for the following landscape applications:

Accent, Mass Planting, Hedges/Screening

Ornamental Features

Crimson Sunset® Maple has attractive deep purple foliage throughout the season. The lobed palmate leaves are highly ornamental and turn outstanding shades of crimson and burgundy in the fall. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.
