Product details

A large and most impressive tree with a well rounded form, it looks good from spring through to autumn as its red foliage turns gradually to maroon. A seedling of Schwedleri, it was raised in Belgium in the 1930s.

This beautiful red leaved Norway Maple does well on most soil types tolerates air pollution and resists drought.

The yellow flowers contrast impressively against the emerging dark purple spring foliage.

We so often see this tree planted in avenues too close together but there is no need as it is quick to grow.

Ten metre centres should be the minimum planting distance as planting in bulk can give too much of a good thing in that the dark leaves tends to gobble up all the light and create a sombre environment below.

Mature height 17-22m

Mature spread: 7-11m
