Shade Tree with Outstanding Color

By far the most outstanding feature of the Crimson King Maple tree, Acer platanoides 'Crimson King', is its summer leaf color. While other homeowners have to wait until fall for their Maples to display vivid colors, your Crimson King will do so all summer long.

Its star-shaped, classic Maple leaves are an engaging deep purple-maroon that stands out amid the usual greens of the summer landscape.

As an added bonus, your Crimson King Maple tree will be dotted with petite yellow flowers in the spring to the delight of the neighborhood’s butterflies and bees.

Seeds will later develop, with a two winged structure that is as entertaining as it is useful. Their enchanting descent to the ground, spinning on the autumn breeze is a sight to behold…if the birds don’t snatch them up first.

When fall arrives your Crimson King Maple tree purple foliage will give one last burst of color as its dark purple shade transform into a bronze hue.

The Crimson King Maple tree can grow up to 50 feet tall with a 30 foot spread to its symmetrical, oval form. It’s a particularly hardy Maple. It’s easily transplanted, tolerates shade, drought and many other conditions well, including urban environments.

A dense shade tree with dramatic uncommon color, the Crimson King Maple Maple tree is a must-have for any home that wants to stand out from the rest.

* Unique leaf color
* Spring flowers
* Wildlife interest
