Quick Overview:

‘Brandywine’ is a male selection (seedless) that typically grows to 25′ tall over the first 12 years, eventually maturing over time to 35-50′ tall. Leaves (to 4 1/2” long) with 3-5 lobes are green above and glaucous green with a blue-gray bloom beneath. Fall color is a brilliant scarlet that gradually turns reddish-purple. Fall color is more intense with more consistent quality red foliage color from year to year than what is typically found on species plants. ‘Brandywine’ is the result of a 1982 cross (Acer rubrum ‘October Glory’ x Acer rubrum ‘Autumn flame’) conducted as part of a U. S. National Arboretum research project. It was subsequently introduced into commerce in 1995.
