Acer rubrum – Red maple tree 10-12cm girth
Acer rubrum is a large, deciduous, tree with a rounded habit. It has dark green leaves, with a purple underside that emerge in the spring, along with erect clusters of tiny red flowers. As summer fades to autumn, these leaves then turn to seasonal shades of scarlet and crimson, providing gardens with fine autumnal colour. Reaching a mature height of 10-20m, this tree should be planted in moist, well-draining, and slightly acidic soil, for the best autumn colour. Often planted for its seasonal interest and recognised for its involvement in the production of Maple syrup, Acer rubrum is a superb tree, ideal for planting as a specimen in larger gardens and parks or for architectural use.
