Acer rubrum

Acer rubrum is the well-known Canadian maple. It is grown primarily for its brilliant red autumn leaf colours. The colours may be more muted in the UK, as they depend on the cold autumn nights and warm autumn days.

Acer rubrum is fast-growing and will reach 6m tall in 10 years in good conditions. It does best on neutral or slightly acidic soils.
