“A growing source of excellence”

(Red Cappadocian Maple)

Acer cappadocicum Rubrum is a majestic tree/ shrub that has a neat, round canopy. The 5-lobed leaves are a lovely plum colour at first, turning to green in the summer and gradually turning yellow in the autumn before they drop.

Due to is slender branches, Acer cappadocicum Rubrum is ideal for any sunny sheltered position and can often be found in a tree grouping in parklands, as a specimen planting on a large lawn or as an avenue or roadway.

Acer cappadocicum Rubrum will generally grow in most soils and as a result of this and the interest it brings to the landscape with its three seasons of colour it has won the RHS award of Garden Merit (AGM).
