Red maple 'Red Sunset'
Family: Aceraceae

Red Maple is a deciduous tree with glossy green leaves that turn orange- scarlet in the summer' very showy with this cultivar. These trees grow faster than sugar maples but slower than silver maples. The red color of buds and twigs appears more vibrant in late March and early April. The 'Red Sunset' red maple can be found at the Centennial Garden Mount.
