Scarlet maple (Acer rubrum) turning red this autumn at Kew Gardens
The scarlet maple (Acer rubrum) comes from the North Eastern United States. This tree thrives in all types of soil, from dry to swampy.
It earns its place in any garden for the length and diversity of its autumn foliage, as it turns from yellow to orange to red, branch by branch. This process of change can sometimes begin as early as August and continue through to early November.
