Common Red - Help ID

Posted by bluepoppy z5 WA (My Page) on

I bought this red maple about 4 years ago and it didnt have a name-tag. I'm sure its a common one.

I normally "label" all my plants, but I'm not so good at ID'ing trees.

A lot of the red maples look similiar to me.

Help please!

RE: Common Red - Help ID

Impossible to know with any certainty hundreds of varieties are out there but if it is common it is most likely a Bloodgood or more common Atrpurpureum..but you are in JM country so it could be anything ..if you lived in the heartland I would almost guarentee it is one of those two.. The leaves are hard to see but look a little too pointed to "definitly" be one of those two but I'd still say it is one of them "probably"...David
