Acer platanoides Crimson Sentry is an ornamental Norway Maple variety. It is much smaller than its parent, suitable for a fairly small garden, and it has plum-wine coloured leaves that burst into joyous reds and oranges in autumn. The Crimson Sentry Maple is a variety of Norway Maple with bright red young leaves that darken through the summer and then go out in a blaze of reds and oranges in autumn. Compared to wild Norway maples, it grows slowly and reaches less than half the height, with a narrow, upright, oval shaped canopy. Much better suited than its big cousin for a smaller garden. Its tidy form also makes it a good choice for an avenue. It looks great in mixed woodland where its rich foliage adds contrast to the green backdrop of other trees.
Acer Crimson Sentry trees can reach a height of about 9 metres. We also buy another ornamental Norway Maple variety - Acer drummondii.
You can also buy wild Norway Maple saplings and large Norway Maple Trees.
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. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
This tree was discovered as a sport of Acer platanoides Crimson King in Oregon, 1974.
