This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: vigorous
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Because of its narrowly upright habit, this handsome Norway maple will make an excellent specimen tree for a medium-sized garden. Covered in crimson coloured leaves throughout the summer, these turn shades of red, brown and orange in the autumn before they are shed. A robust plant, it's tolerant of pollution and will thrive on almost any soil.

  • Garden care: Add a top-dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser around the base of the plant in late spring. No routine pruning is required, just remove any dead, damaged or crossing branches in late autumn or winter when they are fully dormant.
