Product details

Acer platanoides Pacific Red Sunset is a wonderful cutivar of Norway Maple that produces vibrant orange and red autumn colour. This attractive cultivar of Norway Maple is a cross between Acer truncatum and Acer platanoides Warrenred. 

It has the classic large lobed leaf foliage of Norway Maple, emerging bright green and turning to oranges and red in the autumn time.  This tough tree will thrive in most soil conditions, making a good substitute for Acer rubrum varieties that have very specific soil requirements.  The branches are fairly ascending when the tree is young, broadening to an oval shape as the tree matures.

Whilst the autumn foliage is not quite as long lived as tree species such as Liquidambar, the autumnal displays do not disappoint for a tree which is such a stalwart performer. Acer platanoides Pacific Sunset is a medium sized tree at maturity, reaching 12-17m in height. 

It is a great choice if you are looking for adding an ornamental twist to a naturalised looking landscape.

Mature height: 12-17m
