This is the go-to native maple revered for its brilliant fall red color. Cultivars are far more common in the nursery industry relative to the wildtype. It is a moderate to fast grower somewhere between the fast silver maple and the slow sugar maple. While adaptable, red maples prefer acidic, loamy soils. On compacted clay soils, surface roots and leaf chlorosis (yellowing) can occur.
