Burgundy Belle® Red Maple, also known as Acer rubrum 'Magnificent Magenta' has summer foliage that is a medium, dark green and it can tolerate harsh conditions. The September foliage turns red or orange, and then burgundy in October.
The mature plant develops a compact, rounded canopy.
Like all red maples, it is adaptable to a very wide range of site conditions, perhaps more so than any other tree in eastern North America. It can be found growing in swamps, on poor dry soils, on sand dunes and mountain slopes, and most anywhere in between. It grows well from sea level to about 900m (3,000ft) elevation. Due to its attractive fall foliage and pleasing form, it is often used as a shade tree for landscapes. It is used commercially on a small scale for maple syrup production as well as for its medium to high quality lumber. It is also the State Tree of Rhode Island.
It is hardy from zone 5 to zone 9.
