Product Details

Acer campestre Elegant is a perfectly compact and vigorous clone of Field Maple that was introduced from the Netherlands in 1990.

As with all Field Maple cultivars, this tree has small, bright green, lobed leaves that appear in the spring time.  Following this the Samara fruits are produced and borne on the tree in early summer.  In autumn the foliage turns a range of colours, mainly oranges, yellows and browns, before falling.

The uniqueness of Acer campestre Elegant, as the name suggests, comes from the compact and elegant ascending structure of the branches which it retains into maturity.  Like the parent species, it is extremely tough, thriving in rich, well drained soils, yet tolerating virtually any soil type, drought, compaction and air pollution.

The Elegant Field Maple variety is the perfect choice for avenues where uniformity and great shape are essential.  It is also a good choice for rural gardens where the space demands a compact shape and the surroundings prefer a native feel.

Mature height: 7-12m
