Tolerates a wide range of moist but well drained soil types including clay, sandy and loamy and is happy in any aspect in respect of sunlight. Arguably the bestautumn colour will be seen on acid soils, but this is not essential.
Final height may be as much as 12m and width up to 8m.
Acer rubrum 'Red Sunset' is fully hardy, certainly down to -20C.
