Acer rubrum ‘HOSR’ Summer Red™ Maple

Description

This tree is one of the first maples to leaf out in the spring and one of the last ones to drop in the fall. The summer foliage is the most outstanding characteristic of this tree. New leaves are lustrous red to purple changing to dark green as they mature. This superb season-long coloration is a fantastic trade-off for the absence of fall color.
