This maple offers advantages for the grower and landscape architect when using red maple in Florida. Young twigs are brittle and may result in some twig drop following storms.
The tree makes the best growth in wet places in the southern portion of its range but adapts nicely to drier locations in the northern and central portion of its range where rainfall is greater than 40 inches. In fact, it can grow into hardiness zone 10 provided it is planted on a wet site. Trees in the northern portion of its range can grow to more than 100 feet tall in their native habitat.
