Product details

A large tree with a crown which is originally conical before becoming broadly round. It has dark purple leaves which turn golden yellow and orange in autumn.

This Norway Maple has attractive bright red “keys” that are an added feature of this lovely tree.

Yellow flowers in spring contrast beautifully with emerging purple foliage.

Supposedly Acer platanoides Royal Red is smaller and hardier than ‘Crimson King’, however there is an underlying suspicion that it is in fact the same tree but with a different name!

We can’t make up our minds either way but certainly wouldn’t agonise over the choice for planting.

Acer platanoides Royal Red does well on most soil types, tolerates air pollution and resists drought.

Mature heights and crown spread can vary depending on environmental conditions

Mature height: 12-17m

Mature spread: 8-12m
