Maple (Red 'Sun Valley')

Acer rubrum 'Sun Valley'

Red spring flowers. Wonderful shade. Exceptional fall color. All this describes the Red Maple, a great tree that tolerates urban conditions better than the Sugar Maple. 'Sun Valley' has smaller leaves and a lovely orange-red fall color. Pruning to develop structure is very important as this tree is prone to developing co-dominant stems. Grows 50'-60' high and 30'-40' wide.

Red Maple is tolerant of both wet and dry soils. It is, therefore, a good choice for those less-than-ideal areas that are saturated when wet, yet dry out quickly.
