Send a loved one our Red Maple Tree to bring life and colour to their garden. This Japanese tree is treasured for its ornamental features, a stand out gift for birthdays, congratulations, and other celebratory occasions. Rest assured, they’ll love it as much as you love giving it.

Customers cherish the leaves of our Red Rubrum Maple Tree for their rich colour and exceptional shape. They arrive in early spring, lush and dark green, then turn deep red in summer. Later in the year, they reveal their golden yellow autumn colours, a final show before falling off for winter. Winter isn’t a problem for this gift. Simply plant or pot it in a partially shaded, spot with well-draining soil. Loved ones will wait excitedly for spring when the cycle starts again.
