Redpointe Red Maple is a fast-growing native deciduous tree with a strong central leader well structured branching forming a broad pyramidal crown.  Redpointe is notable for its improved drought and heat tolerance, and resistance to leaf scorch.

The foliage emerges burgundy and matures to a silver green that is highlighted its red stems. In fall, the leaves burst into color in a brilliant display of yellows, oranges, and red-purples. 

An inconspicuous bloom of flowers in springs attract bees, followed by papery seedpods. Grows best in rich, moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Redpointe is also resistant to common maple pests and diseases, and can tolerate high PH without yellowing.
