Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Heat tolerance is the distinguishing characteristic of this Acer truncatum cultivar. Its foliage resembles that of a 'Crimson King' maple. A cross between Acer truncatum and Acer platanoides. 'Crimson Sunset' adapts to most soils but grows best in slightly acidic soil conditions. Avoid pruning in late winter and early spring.
