How To Plant Crimson Sunset Maple
The Crimson Sunset Maple surprisingly loves full sun, even with its purple foliage, thriving where others would falter. This tree enjoys well draining soil and is adaptable to most types. The Crimson Sunset does offer heat and drought tolerance, however, water accordingly when first planted to ensure good root structure and promote the best growth possible.
How To Water
When watering your Crimson Sunset Maple, it's best to keep the soil moist when first planted. Achieve this by watering deeply twice a week until established. Thereafter, watch your local weather during those hotter dry spells and water accordingly. Here at Bower and Branch, we want you to enjoy your trees for as long as you can with minimal work involved. This can be done with the help of our Elements Watering System. Fill it, set it, and enjoy!
How To Fertilize
The best time to fertilize your Crimson Sunset Maple is in early spring, as it is breaking dormancy for the year!
How To Prune
The Crimson Sunset Maple is a low maintenance tree requiring little to no pruning. However, the removal of any damaged or broken branches may be done, we advise this process takes place during the tree's dormancy to ensure better growth for the following year.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
