Fully hardy and vigorous ornamental tree, developing a symmetrical ovate crown in later life. Mid-green summer foliage turns to a fiery red in late summer or early autumn, making this a stand-out feature in the latter part of the gardening year.
Acer rubrum 'Sun Valley' is easy to grow, preferring full sun and moist and well drained fertile soils and is also happy on chalky and heavier clay soils and, once established, is notably drought tolerant. Height after 10 years will be 5-6m, possibly more on richer soils.
