Please click on the images to view larger photos


Information Only - The leaves of this wonderful tree change to a glowing, almost translucent, sunset-red in autumn. The autumn colour rivals that of Acer rubrum 'October Glory', the main difference between both cultivars is that 'Red Sunset' will colour up a few weeks earlier in the year (early autumn onwards). A superb tree suitable for gardens of most sizes.
