Description

The Brandywine Maple is a stunning shade tree with great color. Small red blossoms steal the show in early spring even before the red-tinged green leaves emerge. These maple leaves mature to solid green before turning a bold crimson red in fall.

This tough red maple is cold hardy and adaptable. It is drought tolerant once established and can tolerate wet soil. This lovely tree makes an excellent street tree because of its high tolerance for air pollution. The Brandywine Maple tree is easy to grow and requires no maintenance once it is established. This fast growing shade tree offers fast shade for the home landscape. Brandywine is a seedless variety of red maple. It is referred to as a “male selection” because it does not produce seeds.

Key Features:

  • Fall color. The Brandywine Maple tree offers vibrant red foliage in autumn.
  • Easy to grow. Once this tree is established, no care is required. The Brandywine Maple tree is pest and disease resistant, and wet soil and air pollution tolerant.
  • Fast growing tree. This fast growing maple tree grows more than 2 feet per year for the first 10 to 15 years.
  • Seedless. This male selection was bred by the US National Arboretum. It is a cross of the October Glory Maple and the Autumn Flame Maple trees. This tree does not produce seeds.
  • Multi-season interest. Enjoy the red flowers in early spring that are soon followed by young green leaves with hints of red. The foliage loses the red tint and becomes solid green in summer. In fall the leaves turn heads when they morph into wine red.
  • This seedless maple tree won’t stay in stock long! Order yours today before they are gone!

    How To Care

    Spring and fall are ideal times to plant the Brandywine Maple tree. However, if you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant this shade tree almost any time of the year.

    The Brandywine Maple tree can grow in full sun to part shade. This shade tree is adaptable to most soils, but prefers moist, slightly acidic, and nutrient rich soil. Mulch this maple tree with a 1 to 2 inch mound of pine bark or pine straw after planting. Mulching helps keep the roots cool and moist. Keep the mulch away from the trunk. Water deeply at least once per week while your tree is establishing. Watering deeply less often helps the roots grow deeper and establish faster. The Brandywine Maple can tolerate wet sites, but it shouldn't be planted in standing water. Fertilize this tree in early spring and when planting with our slow release fertilizer to give your tree a boost. Maple trees don't generally require pruning, but, if needed, prune when they are dormant to clean up the canopy or maintain shape. For additional tips check out our article on Shade Tree Care.

    Brandywine Maple Trees

    Amazing, beautiful, quick … and I am grateful! Thank you for sending me some beautiful trees. My town was devasted by a hurricane 5 months ago. The hurricane destroyed 85%, yes 85% of Bay County’s trees. I lost my three largest trees, including one that landed in my house. You all not only processed my order and came quickly but sent me some beautiful, unflawed trees. I cannot wait to get these in the ground tomorrow. Thanks guys, you rock!

    Easy transaction

    Purchasing the trees was easy as was requesting a specific week for them to send them. The trees came packaged very well in containers and the boxes did a great job protecting the trees. The trunks of the trees I received were a bit curvy which I didn’t expect but when you don’t pick your own plants I guess that’s a risk you take. Hopefully, as the trees grow and the trunk thickens the curves will not be so noticeable.
