The Brandywine Red Maple is a beautiful shade tree that reliably colors spectacular dark reds, scarlets and purple-reds, towards the end of the season of fall color, extending it further into early winter. This tree has proved to be especially heat-tolerant, so it’s a great choice if you live in the South, if you want to enjoy the reds of fall there. It grows at least 2 feet a year, reaching 25 feet in 12 years, and ultimately approaching 40 feet tall and 30 feet wide. With an attractive pyramidal crown structure, it makes the perfect shade tree on your lawn, a way of marking the corners or boundaries of your property, or a gorgeous addition to an existing woodland.

  • Powerful deep-red to purple-red fall colors
  • Turns color late, extending the fall season
  • Good pyramidal crown structure
  • Excellent heat tolerance for southern gardens
  • Grows well even on wet ground

Hardy all the way from zone 4 into zone 9, the Brandywine Red Maple colors best in full sun, and it thrives in all kinds of soils, including poor urban ones and wet soils too. It naturally grows along the banks of rivers and streams, so it is perfect for wetter areas in your garden. It does not grow so well on very alkaline soils. Pests and diseases are normally not an issue with this tree. If you need to trim it, do this in summer and early fall, not in late winter or spring, when it may bleed sap.
