PREORDER FOR MAY 2023
Named after the famed European hedgerows and magnificent living walls it forged hundreds of years ago, this versatile low-branched AGM champion develops a small, domed close-knit habit dressed in opposite polished dark green leaves with 3 to 5 rounded lobes. Heroically tackling urban conditions, heavy clay and wind, Acer campestre’s no-nonsense deciduous mettle is more acquiescent to hot weather and dry alkaline soil than most in the genus. Though Hedge Maple responds well to clipping, it can also be grown as a large multistemmed shrub, bushy lawn specimen or handsome long-lived street tree, while offering additional enticements: winged fruit, buttery-yellow fall color, bird and pollinator support plus corky, furrowed sable-toned branches for winter interest. Fast growing. Large Band.
Size: 25' 0" – 35' 0" high x 25' 0" – 35' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
