Acer cappadocicum Rubrum: Bareroot Red Cappadocian Maple Trees in Standard Sizes

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 with rusty red-brown margins in the summer, and then yellow in autumn. The new bark is also purple-red. Apart from the leaf colour, it is the same as Acer cappadocicum Aureum.
It can reach a height of about 20 metres.

Delivery season: Maple trees are delivered bareroot during late autumn and winter, approximately November-March inclusive.
Choosing a size: Small trees are cheaper, easier to handle and more forgiving of less than ideal aftercare, so they are best for a big planting project. If instant impact is your priority, or if you are only buying a few plants for use in a place where it is convenient to water them well in their first year, then you may as well use bigger ones. All our bareroot trees are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Features:

  • Height: 10-15m
  • Soil: Moist, fertile, plenty of sun.
  • Use: Avenues
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit
  • Bareroot delivery only: November-March

Growing Red Cappadocian Maples

To really thrive and produce the best Autumn colour, it likes rich, moist soil on the acidic side in full sun, but they should be fine anywhere except shallow chalk and dry sites. It is not suitable for polluted urban or exposed areas.

It is common for the crown of the young tree to get a little tangled, so keep an eye on it and remove awkwardly placed branches when you see them.

Did You Know?

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.

Standard trees are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level: their trunk's waist measurement. Unlike sapling trees and hedge plants, standards aren't measured by their height, which will vary quite a bit both between and within species.
So, a 6/8cm standard tree has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8cm and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10cm around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
On average, standard trees are 2-3.5 metres tall when they arrive, but we cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
