Scarlet Jewell Maple

Acer rubrum 'Bailcraig'

This full, upright maple consistently turns deep crimson red each fall, a full two weeks earlier than other red maples. Covered with a brilliant show of bright red flowers each spring. Scarlet Jewell has excellent symmetrical branching and resists frost cracking. It is an excellent specimen tree and a welcome early beacon of fall. Prefers a moist, slightly acidic soil.
