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: fast
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Awarded an AGM by the Royal Horticultural Society, this is a handsome golden-leaved Norway maple, that holds its colour well throughout the season. It also has a good resistance to scorch, so it will be equally happy in a sunny or partially shaded spot. An eye-catching tree, it's probably at it's absolute best when the new foliage is at its most vibrant gold, it makes a stunning focal point or feature, and once established it will take pollution and drought in its stride.

  • 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.
