Acer Platanoides Crimson Sentry

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.
