Brandywine Red Maple is a popular cultivar of the native deciduous tree highly regarded for its vibrant fall foliage and attractive upright branching that makes a dense rounded canopy.

The leaves emerge in spring with a reddish tint, which deepens to dark green for summer before earning its long-lasting fall tones of rich red-burgundy. This intense autumn display is truly spectacular and adds a elegant touch to any landscape.

This variety of Red Maple is adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions, including clay, loam, and sandy soils. It prefers full sun to partial shade and can tolerate wetter areas, making it a versatile choice for various garden settings.
