About the Crimson King Maple :

The Crimson King Maple, 'Acer platanoides' 'Crimson King', is a red-leaved cultivar of the Norway Maple and it is noted for its rich maroon leaves throughout the summer.

The Crimson King grows best in a well drained area and is very tolerant of drought and urban pollutants. It often used as a specimen tree for the landscape and it provides dense shade.

The smooth bark, straight trunk, and strong branching, provide for nice winter interest. This tree is easily transplanted and is adapted to a wide variety of soils including alkaline, sand, clay and acid soils.

Uses include bonsai, medium sized parking lot islands, median strip plantings, and residential shade and street tree.
