Maple - Summer Red #5 Pot
The Summer Red Maple is a fast-growing maple that not only provides quick shade for your yard but also offers lovely color throughout the seasons. The leaves emerge burgundy-red each spring, mature to dark purplish green in the summer, then transition to shades of yellow, orange, and purple in the fall. A resilient shade tree, its defining feature is its canopy of leaves, which defy traditional color transitions. Resistant to diseases and effortlessly planted and tended to, this species provides thick shade that just becomes all the more lush and refreshing as the tree continues to steadily grow. With a 3-9 USDA hardiness zone rating, the Summer Red Maple is extremely adaptable to a spectrum of soils and climate conditions, enabling it to survive in practically every state of the nation. Its dense, broadly conical crown scrapes respectable heights of 35-40 ft and a spread of 20-25 feet. Plant it on a lawn as a superb shade tree, or as a richly-colored avenue along a driveway or property line. Plant it in the background of a larger garden as a focal point.
