Crimson Sentry makes a great ornamental tree for small to medium sized gardens due to its tall, columnar habit. It will reach heights of 12m with a spread of 5m in a 20 year period.

The stately Norway Maple is best known for its stunning display of rich coloured foliage in spring, summer and autumn. The new leaves emerge in spring in a bold red hue and are slightly sticky to the touch. They then mature to a rich burgundy in summer, smothering the branches. As autumn approaches, they put on a display of fiery orange, red and brown before falling. In spring, pretty yellow flowers with a red tinge appear on the bare branches, adding all-year round interest.

Crimson Sentry’s are fully hardy and will tolerate most soil types. They are exceptionally resilient making them ideally suited to polluted urban areas, coastal areas and less than perfect soil types.

Your Acer Crimson Sentry tree stands confidently upright and bold, living up to its name. Plant one to stand guard at your home entrance or garden gate. Plant many in a row to line a long winding driveway or walkway. They make a great display when planted together with green leaf Maples, such as the Acer campestre, offering a lovely contrast against the purple hues of the Crimson Sentry.
