'Crimson King' Norway Maple, Acer Platanoides 'Crimson King'
The main attribute of this tree is its maroon-yellow flowers in the spring and its purple-red leaves. It has a dense canopy that grows in an oval to rounded shape, with a mature height of up to 35 feet and a crown spread of up to 30 feet. This tree is excellent as an accent tree to a landscape but may be a challenge to grow in the Grand valley. It can adapt to a wide variety of soils and can tolerate drought conditions.
