Acer platanoides 'Crimson Sentry'
‘Crimson Sentry' TreeTop of Form
A beautiful feature tree, this Purple Norway Maple has dark crimson foliage which covers the upright branches. Growing to just 6 x 2 meters in 20 years, Acer platanoides 'Crimson Sentry' is ideal for small gardens and it would also make a lovely feature at an entrance or gateway. It is not only popular for its narrow form, but also the beautiful lobed foliage which turns from dark-red to rich purple in the summer and then to bright red again in the autumn.
Acer platanoides 'Crimson Sentry' truly lives up to its name, standing proudly and boldly upright, as if guarding the surrounding area. Ideal for tough positions, this columnar tree is tolerant of pollution and will do well in most soils. Exposed coastal positions are no problem for this handsome Norway maple tree.
