Product details

Acer platanoides Princeton Gold is a sparkling golden leaved cultivar of the Norway Maple, Acer platanoides. Like the species, this tree has discrete yellow flowers that appear in spring, however they are a little lost against the stunning emerging spring foliage which is a sunny and bright golden yellow.

As the summer progresses the foliage slowly changes in colour, ending predominantly green. In the warmer climes of the USA the foliage of this tree can be susceptible to scorching, however the wonderfully temperate UK climate is perfect for it, and the leaf colour makes it one of the best “yellows” available.

Acer platanoides Princeton Gold, also known as ‘Prigo’, like its parent, is a tough performer tolerating most soil types, air pollution and the perils of drought.

This medium sized golden maple tree produces an oval crown and is best suited to planting schemes where contrast features heavily. It is particularly effective when planted with a deep green or red foliaged opposite.

Mature height: 12-17m
