Brilliant red fall color plus upright, broadly pyramidal form make Redpointe® Maple a standout. The refined form and foliage of the best Acer rubrum cultivars combine with the faster growth rate normally found in Acer x freemanii. A straight and dominant central leader results in strong branch angles that make it easier to grow. Leaves are deep green in summer and resistant to leaf chlorosis and it shows an improved resistance to anthracnose, spider mites and leaf hoppers. A J. Frank Schmidt Nursery introduction.
