Acer Platanoides Crimson Sentry
A beautiful feature tree, this Norway Maple has dark purple foliage on upright branches. Acer platanoides ‘Crimson Sentry’ is ideal for a small garden, and it would also make a lovely feature at an entrance or gateway. It is not only popular for its narrow form but also the beautiful lobed foliage which turns from dark red to a rich purple in the summer and then to bright red again in the autumn. Acer ‘Crimson Sentry’ truly lives up to its name, standing proudly and boldly upright.
