Red Maple Fall Color Starter Pack

One of the things that trees do best is enhancing the fall landscape with brilliant, blazing color—and Red Maples bring some of the best autumn hues. In multiples, they'll set a breathtaking scene for many decades, however buying multiple trees can get really costly. That's why we came up with the starter pack. The three trees in this pack are younger than you'd find them in a garden center, and between the size and bundle pricing, they make bringing home multiple trees actually affordable. Plus, trees that are younger and smaller have an easier time establishing roots. This red maple is an excellent, moderate- to fast-growing variety, which makes a medium-sized shade or street-lining tree. It's also an easy-to-grow native variety that's tolerant of wet soil—great around a rain garden.

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.

Bareroot perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and provides your new plant with the best opportunity for success in your garden.

Trees and other oversize items cannot be shipped to PO boxes.

After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate. You will also receive an email notification when your order ships with an updated arrival estimate and tracking information.

At any time after you place your order you can check your order status on our website using your email or the account number found in your order confirmation email.
