Care Red maple
The Red maple develops like a tree. The Red maple develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. Red maple isn't an evergreen; during the autumn it assumes a redpink colouring; the adult species are large in size and reach 16 m in height.

Temperatures Red mapleSole pieno
For a balanced development of the The Red maple it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The Red maple is a plant which can be grown in the garden year round.During the winter young plants could need a light protection from the wind or cold; when putting the very young specimens, with a thin stem, in shelter, we should provide them with a high stake to keep them erect.

Irrigation Red mapleTenere asciutto
Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 1-2 buckets of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 4-5 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. The young specimens, recently sheltered, need more cures compared to the adult specimens: as the years go by the development of a good radical apparatus allows the plant to be satisfied with the rain, without needing other waterings.

Adversity Red maple
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Substrate Red maple
Letís place these trees in a soft and deep, but well drained, soil.
