This full, upright maple consistently turns deep crimson red each fall, a full two weeks earlier than other red maples. Covered with a brilliant show of bright red flowers each spring. Scarlet Jewell™ has excellent symmetrical branching and resists frost cracking. It is an outstanding specimen tree and a welcome early beacon of fall. Prefers a moist, slightly acidic soil. Own root. Selected in northern Minnesota by Terry Schwartz of Bailey Nurseries.
