Crimson Sunset® Maple - Acer truncatum x platanoides 'JFS-KW202' PP21838

Water regularly as needed. Drought tolerant once established. Feed in spring with an all purpose fertilizer prior to new spring growth. Little pruning is necessary but try to promote a central leader and strong branching structure when young. Prune broken or damaged limbs.
