Expert Response

Good morning. Your Crimson King maple tree should flower in early spring - right about now. The tree flowers before it leafs out, so the leaves should follow soon. Some culture information is provided in the link below to the Missouri Botanical Garden's site. In addition, please be advised that this tree is considered invasive in Pennyslvania.  Some information on this is provided in the second link.
