Acer macrophyllum Rubrum is a cultivar of the Western or Oregon Maple that is native to the Pacific Northwest. This cultivar is rare in cultivation, but worthy of a spot in your landscape. The leaves of A. macrophyllum Rubrum are a deep reddish color when they emerge in the spring. This color holds for several weeks and then the leaves turn to a reddish brown and finally to the typical deep green of the species. The trees that I offer are the brightest and boldest red selected from a large number of seedlings from the parent plant. The parent plant of the trees that I offer is about 30 feet tall and is a spectacular sight in the spring! Hardy and heat tolerant.
