The Sun Valley Red Maple is a compact form of the red maple, which is ideal for smaller gardens, or where a full-sized tree would be too large. It grows more slowly, and it matures between 20 and 35 feet tall, rather than the normal tree, which is over 40 feet tall. Its upright branches mean it also has a narrower spread, so it can be planted in more restricted spaces. It may be smaller, but its fall colors are just as powerful, ranging from brilliant orange-reds to darker burgundy-reds. It is an ideal choice for a smaller lawn, or anywhere a smaller tree is needed in restricted spaces.
- Mature size is 20-35 ft tall/15-25 ft wide
- Hardy in zones 4-7
- Full Sun
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
