“A growing source of excellence”

(Norway maple Royal Red)

To add a splash of colour to any scheme look no further than the magnificent Acer platanoides Royal Red. This American selection of Acer platanoides is a fast growing, medium sized tree which develops a wide conical crown and makes a beautiful standalone specimen.

Large clusters of lemon yellow flowers emerge in early spring before the leaves. These are followed by large, dark purple lobed leaves which turn bright red in autumn.

Good wind resistance and a tolerance of most soils, drought and urban pollution means that this tree will thrive almost anywhere.

Acer Royal red is rumoured to be slightly smaller and hardier than the closely related Crimson King.
