The Crimson King Norway Maple is an upright deciduous tree with large lobed leaves, growing to around 40 feet tall and 30 feet wide. The leaves are very dark crimson-purple from the time they emerge in spring all through summer, and into the fall. The showy green-yellow flowers are a spring feature. This is an excellent tree for color contrast with other trees, and it is very easy to grow, even under the most difficult conditions. An extremely popular background tree and very valuable in urban gardens.

  • Crimson-purple leaves from spring to fall
  • Rounded crown to 40 feet tall
  • Strong upright trunk with gray-brown bark
  • Very tough and reliable in the most difficult conditions
  • Ideal for colder zones

The Crimson King Norway Maple is hardy even in zone 3, and grows well in all the cooler zones. It grows in almost all soils, including heavy clays and soils that are periodically flooded. A tree that tolerates urban conditions well, it is generally free of pests or diseases. Lower branches can be removed as it grows, if needed, for movement underneath it.
