Acer platanoides ‘Globosum’ Designer Maple
A great, grafted variety of Norway Maple. A symmetrical and round-headed small tree which is grafted onto a 1.8m standard, which means the trunk will never grow taller than 1.8m, just the standard above will grow bigger and create an almost ball shape. The Acer Globosum requires little or no pruning to maintain its shape.
The new foliage has a bronze tinge, turning mid to dark green, then in autumn a golden yellow.
Great as a feature or focal point in the garden or planted in pairs or rows. Use in small gardens and public areas as a focal point, large containers and general landscape use.
Grow in full sun to part shade. A hardy variety of maple that will handle most conditions including some heat, low levels of drought and air pollution. Generally a pest and disease free tree that requires little maintenance once established.
