Acer platanoides Emerald Queen was selected in the USA in the late 1950s and has a brighter green leaf colour and more regular habit than the species.
This tree tends to keep a dominant central leader and a more regular habit.
A superb cultivar and strongly recommended for street and urban plantings.
Where uniformity is required this is a far better choice than its parent Acer platanoides.
This lovely Norway Maple does well on most soil types tolerates air pollution and resists drought.
Although ascending when young it usually gets as wide as it gets broad after about 25 years so it is only ideal for wide verges and areas large enough to accommodate it.
It is by far the most popular of the Norway Maple clones and a much safer bet than planting the seedling parent.
