This tough newcomer to our range is derived from a seedling of ‘Crimson King’. It thrives on poor urban soils and maintains an upright oval habit and at maturity its dimensions are approximately 15 metres tall with a diameter of 10 metres, making it a very useful urban tree.
The new flush of foliage is reddish purple and emerges in the spring, hardening to a deep bronze by late summer.
Acer platanoides Fairview bears yellow flowers from April onwards that are a lovely contrast with the dark leaves as they first emerge.
Mature height: 12-17m
Mature spread: 8-12m
