Acer Cappadocicum Rubrum

This is a variety of Cappadocian Maple with a neat, round canopy of slim branches. The young leaves are plum red at first, turning green in the summer and then yellow in autumn. It is best in a sunny, sheltered location, but it will grow in almost any fertile soil that is no more than semi-shaded. It can grow into a fair sized tree and so is not is not suitable for constricted sites. Its branches are relatively slender and so not the strongest which means it not best suited for the most exposed positions. Acer cappadocicum Rubrum  can reach a height of about 20 metres. Apart from leaf colouring, this tree is very similar to Acer cappadocicum Aureum.

How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height. Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. 

History & uses of Cappadocian Maple Aureum
The first Cappadocian Maples, which are native to Turkey, Iran and Eastern Europe, were introduced to Germany in 1838 and this variety was bred by Booth's nursery in 1842. It has won the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
