Bradywine Maple
Acer rubrum 'Brandywine'

Plant Description - The Brandywine Maple resulted from a 1982 cross of Acer rubrum 'October Glory' and A. rubrum 'Autumn Flame' by A.M. Townsend as part of a research project examining the inheritance of fall color, leafhopper resistance, and an effort to improve existing cultivars of red maple. Released December, 1994, the 'Brandywine' has a brilliant red-purple autumn color. It produces only male flowers; thus, no fruit or nuisance seedlings. It has a significant level of tolerance to potato leafhopper, which is better than or comparable to many commercially available red maple cultivars. It can reach a height of 25 feet and a width of 12 feet at a crown spread in 12 years. The Brandywine is a medium-sized deciduous tree with moderately columnar crown and foliage of medium green leaves that average 4.5 inches long and 4.4 inches wide. Bright, enduring fall color begins red and gradually turns brilliant purple red over a long period, often 14 days or more. Fall color peaks between 'Autumn Flame' and 'October Glory' in Maryland (Zone 7).
