Acer platanoides Deborah is a fast growing cultivar of Norway maple which has bright red new foliage. Like the species, this tree has discrete yellow flowers that appear in spring and contrast fantastically with the deep red foliage which gradually hardens to green throughout the summer period.
The red foliage emerges each time the tree has a growth spurt, giving a continuous contrast throughout the summer of red and green foliage. In the autumn the deeply lobed leaves, with a distinctive wavy margin, change to a rich orangey/yellow.
Acer platanoides Deborah is a stalwart performer, tolerating most soil types, air pollution and resists the perils of drought. This stunning large tree is perfect as a statement tree for large gardens and also is a great choice for avenues as the contrasting foliage and autumn colour offers varying interest throughout the year.
Mature height: 12-17m
