Red Field Maple Royal Ruby, produces gorgeous red young shoots and leaves in spring that give a splash of colour to your garden in spring. and which turn mid green for the summer. Royal Ruby's leaves are slightly smaller than those of the wild field maples but in just the same way the foliage turns a clear, rich golden colour in autumn. It is suitable for any soil except acidic peat and it will grow in any location except on the coast. Although it will tolerate quite a lot of shade, we recommend planting it where there is more than half a day of sun to encourage the best colour on the new growth. We grow another ornamental Field Maple, Acer campestre Streetwise.
Acer Royal Ruby trees can reach a height of about 20 metres but for something different, why not take a look at our range of 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.
