Acer platanoides 'Royal Red'
Royal Red Maple
This Norway maple selection is similar to 'Crimson King', but with a somewhat slower growth rate and what some consider slightly better color. A dense shade tree, it has a straight trunk with a well-shaped canopy. The glossy foliage is an excellent maroon red all season.
- » Improvement on the popular Crimson King holds its rich royal purple color well all season
- » Great accent or shade tree for larger yards
- » Tons stunning corymbs of lemon yellow flowers along the branches in early spring before the leaves
