Product Details

Enjoy adding purple color to your home with the Crimson King!  This unique Maple Tree is one of a kind.  Its a strong maple that really brings a different look.

This Maple gets up to 30-40 feet tall and grows in most areas.  Its not fussy about where its planted and just wants to grow.  Its a great choice if you don't need anymore green and are looking for something more unique.  

This tree grows in zones 3-7 and can be planted in full sun to part shade and grows best in full sun..  Its very low maintenance if any so you will not have to spend any time maintaining it.  

Fall color is going to be a nice smooth yellow that will contrast with the other common maple trees come fall.  During the spring, the Crimson King will push out small maroon-yellow flowers that give way to purple samaras.  When this tree is trimmed, a white milky sap will exude from its stems.  

Also makes a great Gift Tree!

Planting Instructions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

Love the tree
Love the tree and can't wait to see it grow. I wish it had been a little bigger but I have never bought a tree to know what to expect.
