A favourite of caterpillars and birds who cherish the small, yellow clusters of fruit, this Scandinavian native is large and impressive. Yellow flowers stand in beautiful contrast to new leaves as they emerge. Those palmate 5 lobed leaves are a delicious shade of purple, before bronzing in Autumn. It’s well suited to avenue and group plantings, or even for use as a specimen. Deciduous, it will reach 6 x 4m when mature.
Suitable for: Group and avenue plantings, specimen.
Features: Beautiful crimson red to dark purple foliage with small golden flower when coming into leaf.
Botanical Name: ACER platanoides ‘Nigrum
