Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Acer is easy to grow, and adapt to most conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include a free fertilizer packet.

Interesting Notes

Red Rocket is a National Arboretum release. High level of leaf hopper tolerance combined with a strongly columnar crown. May prove to be the best of tall and narrow maples.
