The Brandywine Maple is a deciduous tree with fall foliage that begins red and turns a purple-red. The tree also produces flowers in early spring. Its flowers are only male. It has a medium growth-rate and is a smaller variety of maple, reaching only about 25 feet tall with a spread of 12 feet. Brandywine is the perfect choice if you want the beauty of fall foliage but don't have the space needed for a larger tree. Brandywine is hardy in Zones 4-8. USDA ZONES:Zone 4, Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8

First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
Maples prefer full sun or partial shade and may need to be staked when planted. Make sure to plant in an area where there is lots of room for the tree to grow. Create a 3-4 inch layer of mulch leaving room between the mulch and the tree's trunk. Water regularly after planting. Fertilize in spring and summer, and prune in late summer or early fall.

My tree arrived amongst others well packaged. Carefully took my trees out the Brandywine was last. He is big, beautiful and now standing in my front yard ready to Wow the neighbors.Considering he came well formed with branches reaching in every direction, Im sure after he become established the Wowing will begin.
