About the Lipstick Tree Range

  • Renowned for their intense, vibrant red autumn foliage the Lipstick® range of maples are among the most sought after in the country.
  • Originating from low, wet, temperate climates, the Lipstick® maples prefer a moist (not wet) position.
  • They also prefer full sun exposure, but just remember that the autumn colour will be less vibrant in dryer conditions and will not cope with extended periods of heat.
  • Avoid pruning in late winter or spring.
  • Autumn Blaze, October Glory and Fairview Flame are the best red maples for autumn colour that you can find in Australia.
  • They are brilliant shade trees and make stunning features down long driveways or avenues.
