Product details

Selected by Newton Armstrong int the states in 1947, this small to medium tree has a tightly columnar habit making it very useful as a street and car park tree

It is half Acer rubrum and half Acer saccharinum but the later dominates with autumn colour of orange and yellows rather than glorious scarlet.

The toughness of its Silver Maple parentage makes it a better bet than Acer rubrum and its cultivars when manganese is not present in the soil.


It tolerates urban conditions but as a warning note is very susceptible to damage by glyphosate (Roundup) so beware.

Generally this sturdy Canadian Maple will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, with the exception being excessively dry or alkaline soils.

Mature height: 7-12m

Mature spread: 5-10m
