Acer platanoides ‘Crimson Sentry’

Description: Acer platanoides 'Crimson Sentry' is a less vigorous variety of 'Crimson King'. It's a round-headed, medium-sized tree. Lime green flowers tinged red appear in April followed by large intense purple foliage which turn bright orange-brown during the autumn. Other comparable purple-leaved forms are Acer ‘Goldsworth Purple’ and Acer ‘Royal Red’.

History: A seedling of 'Schwedleri' raised in Belgium in 1937.

Growing Tips: Very easy to grow in a wide range of well-drained soils. They thrive in sun but with partial shade to protect the leaves from scorch. A sheltered area away from strong winds is preferred.
