Acer platanoides Globosum is a ‘Lollypop’ form of the Norway Maple, Acer platanoides, which is grafted at the top of the stem. Like the species, this tree has discrete yellow flowers that appear in spring, and bright green leaves which turn golden yellow and sometimes red in the autumn.
Acer platanoides Globosum is a top worked version (grafted at the top of the stem) of Acer platanoides, grafted at a height of approximately 2m tall. The crown over time therefore develops into a broad mop head from this height. This small tree, like its parent, is a tough performer tolerating most soil types, air pollution and the perils of drought.
It is a smart tree which can be planted as a single specimen to give architectural structure to a planting scheme, or can also be planted in a run to form a deciduous stilted hedge. The latter option will require regular maintenance to maintain the shape.
Mature height: 3-7m
