A hybrid with A. megapotamicum with deep, orange-red flowers of only about 1". Free flowering, like others, year round when temperatures stay above 20 °F. Growth is compact so plants remain under 6' tall. Provide consistent water and fertilizer and place out of the hottest sun in dappled shade to shade. Root hardy to mid USDA zone 8 with mulch for extra protection from winter's cold.

Brilliant red/orange flowers and a graceful lax habit make 'Red Gumdrop' an exceptional flowering maple. To 30" tall with profuse flowers it makes a great container subject or as an annual in a border. Part shade with regular water in rich soil. Lax habit allows it to climb gently into shrubs. Blooms May to frost or longer. Mixes well with bold Coleus and tuberous begonias. Best where stems will spill over the side of a pot.
