Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ACER truncatum 'Warrenred'(PACIFIC SUNSET®) PP7433
Pacific Sunset® Maple, Painted Maple, Shantung Maple
Pacific Sunset maple ('Warrenred') is a tough shade tree with a fast growth rate and atypical red fall color. Although its parentage is uncertain, it is perhaps a hybrid of the Shantung maple (Acer truncatum)from China with Norway maple (A. platainoides). Pacific Sunset's deep yellow-green leaves are slightly larger in size than the species and have more small lobes and more pointed lobes on the leaf blade. In autumn, leaves typically change bright red, but may include dulled purple tones. The bark of this tree is slightly rough and a brown-orange to gray.
Plant 'Warrenred' in full sun for best formation of its well-branched, symmetrical canopy. Quite cold tolerant and able to perform well in acidic and alkaline soils, dry locations and urban areas, it should be used more. The smaller mature size of this fast-growing shade tree makes it a superb choice for a backyard patio area or small-scale park.
