Lovely to meet you, my name is Crimson King Norway Maple. I am an incredibly popular choice as a shade-providing front yard accent, best known for my deep burgundy foliage which grows in a natural, rounded form. In the spring, I bloom an abundance of lemon yellow flowers before my leaves appear, and in the fall my leaves turn a striking deep purple. I am low maintenance, and only require pruning once all my leaves have fully developed. I am very adaptable, not particular to any soil type or pH, and very tolerant of urban pollution - you can plant me right in the city! I am happiest, healthiest and most beautiful when I am grown in full sun, and my soil is kept moist and not allowed to dry out!
