Acer platanoides ‘Royal Red’ (Norway Maple)

A hardy, deciduous tree with dark purple leaves and brilliant red autumn colour. Growing to 12m in height with a wide or conical crown. Clusters of yellow flowers in spring followed by red keys. This Acer could be used as a specimen tree, with it’s dark red leaves standing out from the crowd.  Red is the first colour in nature that our eyes are drawn to, which helps accentuate trees like this.  A great avenue tree too, for lining driveways or paths.

Best in full sun to partial shade in a sheltered position. Any type of moist to well drained soil, it is also both drought and pollutant tolerant.

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
