Brandywine Red Maple Trees

Acer rubrum 'Brandywine'

The Brandywine Red Maple has a brilliant, deep red color in the fall. This Native Shade Tree will bring an elegant feel to your yard in the fall with a fantastic display of burgundy/red leaves. The fall color lasts longer than many other maple trees. The Brandywine Red Maple is a very popular shade tree because it is fast growing. It has a strong branching structure and as it matures it develops a uniformed, oval form.

How to Care for Brandywine Red Maple Trees

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Brandywine Red Maple plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Brandywine Red Maple to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally occuring beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardeners best friend and can help guarantee your success.

Additional Information

Brandywine Red Maple resulted from a 1982 cross of Acer rubrum 'October Glory' and A. rubrum 'Autumn Flame' by A.M. Townsend as part of a research project examining the inheritance of fall color and leafhopper resistance, and an effort to improve existing cultivars of red maple. Released by the US National Arboretum in December, 1994.
