Brandywine Maple Tree
Brandywine is a beautiful red maple with bright red leaves in fall that turn to a deep purple-red as they age. Brandywine is about half the size of the larger growing Acer rubrum cultivars, which lends well to its use in smaller landscapes and spaces where the larger maples won't fit. Due to its parentage, Brandywine is a fast grower adding 3-4 feet in height per year. Get all the details below

Special Attributes

With Brandywine Maple you get a unique, cross hybrid of Acer rubrum 'October Glory' and Acer rubrum 'Autumn Flame', resulting in a mid-size maple tree with beautiful dark green leaves that turn bright red in the fall and fading gradually to a brilliant purple-red before dropping for the winter. 

Due to its parentage, the Brandywine Maple is a fast grower adding 3-4 feet in height per year, growing to about half the size of the species with a more upright, narrow form to only 15 feet wide or so, which makes it ideal for use in smaller landscapes or to line a street or driveway. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 25-30 feet in height by 15' wide at maturity, the Brandywine Maple is ideal for use as a specimen, in grouping, or to line a street, driveway or property line. Its small size lends well to use as a shade tree in small to medium size landscapes and to frame the corners or tall homes or other building. A fine addition to bird gardens and the Xeriscape (low water needs). Brandywine Maple is sure to add exceptional beauty to your landscape while also substantially increasing the value of your property.

Spacing:  10' apart for solid screen; 20' apart for space between trees



Cultural Preferences

The Brandywine Maple is very easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and in full sun to part shade. Established trees are quite drought tolerant. We've seen absolutely no problems with insects or disease and deer won't touch it.
