Acer platanoides 'Princeton Gold' (Plane-Leaved Maple) Details

“Princeton Gold” is a variety of the commonly known, Plane-Leaved Maple, and is a medium sized tree with fantastic foliage. The leaves emerge bright yellow in spring, age to become a less intense yellow during summer, then develop brilliant shades of yellow in autumn before falling. Clusters of small, yellow flowers adorn the tree in summer and are followed by the winged seeds in autumn. It grows with an upright, spreading habit to eventually reach 10 m tall and 7 m wide. Best results are achieved when it is planted in full sun on a well-drained site, with young trees protected from wind while they establish. It will grow on a range of soil types but will struggle at the extremes of wet and dry, and is tolerant of frost and cool climates. “Princeton Gold” makes for a magnificent specimen and is ideal for parks and large gardens where is provides wonderful shade and colour. It is also well-suited to lifestyle properties for providing shelter, screening, and vibrant colour.
