Norway Maple, Acer platanoides, are not really hedging plants. They are much better grown as a tree in woodlands or as a specimen. Like this, they will become quite large and round-headed, with a lovely warm yellow autumn display. It produces yellow-green flowers in April, just before the leaves break, which are pollinated by bees. The large, glossy green summer foliage colours beautifully in autumn. This large tree is usually grown as a specimen in parks and big gardens. It will reach 25 metres if it grows freely as a tree, spreading up to 20 metres wide in time. The plants on this page are young saplings, ideal for planting in woodland projects. You can also buy larger Norway Maple trees here. For hedging, native Field maple is cheaper and better. See our full range of hedging options.
Norway Maple plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-Apr).
