The deep green lobed leaves of summer create a neatly presented aesthetic. Tidy and upright, the ‘red sunset’ stands there elegantly as you patiently wait for Autumn and the crimson colour show that comes with it. That show, when the red veins of the leaves spread the colour to each lobe tip, seems almost unreal or otherworldly. Ideal for smaller gardens and avenues, this well structured maple also makes for a colourful shelter or screen. This deciduous, hardy example will grow up to 10m
