Blazing-Red Fall Color

Why Redpointe Maples?

The Redpointe Maple is a fall standout for its brilliant red foliage, but that's only part of its charm. It’s attractive year-round, with a pyramidal shape and deep green foliage. And it's bred with an adaptable shape and size, perfect for home landscape accents.

Gardeners choose the Redpointe Maple for its quintessential autumn-red leaves. But you'll get visual interest from season to season. Dark green leaves with silvery accents grow on red branches, which pop even in winter. In the springtime, the Redpointe Maple blooms with red flowers.

Plus, you'll love the Redpointe Maple's easy growth. Hardier than other varieties, the Redpointe Maple can thrive in many different soil types and climates, as long as it's watered during the drier months.

Its adaptability is particularly useful for areas with high pH soils - other maples planted in this type of soil may undergo leaf chlorosis, a yellowing of the leaves. But the Redpointe Maple is not susceptible - and it's resistant to other pests and diseases that may afflict maples.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: The Redpointe Maple can tolerate many different soil conditions, but it prefers well-draining soil. When you're ready to plant, select a spot in full to partial sun exposure (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day is ideal). Dig a hole that's 2 to 3 times the width of your tree's root ball and equal depth.

Place your tree in the hole, keeping the top of the root ball even with the ground. Fill a small amount of soil into the hole to maintain the tree’s upright position and water thoroughly. Once the water has absorbed into the root ball and surrounding soil, backfill the remaining soil. Pack firmly and water a second time. Mulch to retain soil moisture and keep competing growth away.

2. Watering: During its formative years, your Redpointe Maple will require weekly watering. Even as it matures, your tree will still need plenty of water during the summer months. Light green leaves are a sign of over-watering, while drooping leaves can signify both over-watering and under-watering.

3. Fertilizing: During the first growing season, use only slow-release fertilizer tablets on your new maple. Any 10-10-10 fertilizer is suitable. Fertilize your Redpointe Maple twice a month when it is coming out of dormancy, and once a month during the summer. Discontinue fertilizing before the tree returns to its dormant state.

4. Pruning: Prune maple trees during winter or early spring before bud break, when they are fully dormant. This helps minimize stress on the tree and reduces the risk of disease transmission. Maples can bleed sap heavily if pruned during the growing season (spring and summer). Remove dead or broken branches first. Next, thin out the canopy to allow for better light and air circulation.
