Armstrong Red Maple Trees
Armstrong Maple Trees
Acer x freemanii Armstrong, is slender and upright, similar to Acer freemanii Celebration, with brilliant gold and orange leaves in the autumn. With its narrow canopy, this is an ideal tree for a fairly small garden or roadside or avenue planting. It looks wonderful ina mixed wood as well. Older trees will spread out a little, becoming egg shaped, but this can be corrected if wanted with some gentle pruning. The autumn colour is simply awesome. It grows well on most soils (including chalky ones), but it gives the best autumn colour on soils that are neutral or acidic. Armstrong Maple trees can reach a height of about 20 metres.
