Red Maple, Acer Rubrum
Adding a Red Maple tree to a garden or landscape design can make an otherwise uninteresting lawn stand out. These gorgeous trees not only boost a property's curb appeal but also produce abundant eye-catching leaves, providing a relaxing shady retreat. As one of eastern North America's most abundant and favorite plants, the Red Maple tree is a hardy fast-grower, able to survive in both swampy and dry conditions. It does, however, prefer slightly acidic soils over alkaline, so soil testing before planting is recommended.
If you have a large, sunny or partially shaded spot, planting this tree means brilliant year-round shades of red. In the spring, tiny red flowers bloom, which are then replaced by bright red-stemmed green leaves in the summer. Fall brings many hues to a yard, adding interest through an otherwise dreary season. This tree will lose its leaves by winter, replacing them with rust-colored samaras by spring.
Red Maple is low maintenance, as it requires very little pruning.
