Product details

Also known as Prigo, this sparkling new cultivar has golden yellow spring foliage which hardens to yellow / green in summer. We recommend it for both park and street planting.

This clone of Norway Maple was developed in the United States, the foliage can tend to scorch up in really hot conditions so it is not widely used there.

In the wonderfully temperate climate of the UK, this tree is well suited, with the Golden leaf colour making it one of the best ‘yellows’ on the market.

Acer platanoides Princeton Gold is a great choice to bring colour to any project, especially given the problems associated with Robinia Frisia in the UK now, this Norway Maple cultivar does well on most soil types, tolerates air pollution and resists drought.

There are very few reliable yellow foliage trees that thrive in the UK but in our opinion this clone rates as one that shouldn’t be overlooked. Lighter coloured leaves can provide stunning contrast to a garden with a sombre evergreen backdrop.

Mature height: 12-17m

Mature spread: 8-10m
