Norway Maple 'Crimson King' 15 Gallon

Norway Maple 'Crimson King' 15 Gallon

Acer platanoides

This is a showy, red-leaved Norway maple that forms clusters of burgundy-yellow flowers in early spring, then 2" long purple "helicopters", and finally large, rich maroon foliage that provides three seasons of color. It produces a compact, rounded canopy, a strong, straight trunk, and excellent branching. It's an easy to grow tree tolerant of heat, drought, and pollution. Plant in well-drained, amended soil. Water well after planting; maintain 1" of water once a week the first year. Little pruning needed; shapes itself nicely. Remove dead branches or trunk suckers any time. Sap flows heavily in late winter/early spring, best to avoid heavy pruning at that time. Feed at least twice during the growing season with a slow release fertilizer in early spring and again mid-summer. Follow label instructions. Mulch 2" to suppress weeds, retain moisture and protect against extremes of soil temperature. It's an easy to grow tree tolerant of heat, drought, and pollution.
