Acer plat. 'Crimson King'

Category: Shop All, Trees


One of the most cherished purple-leaf landscape trees, holding its foliage color well throughout the season; a dense shade tree best used as a prominent color accent, many consider it the ultimate feature tree for the front yard. Crimson King Norway Maple has attractive burgundy foliage throughout the season. The lobed leaves are highly ornamental and turn an outstanding deep purple in the fall. It is bathed in stunning corymbs of lemon yellow flowers along the branches in early spring before the leaves. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
