Acer or Maple


Maples (Acer) are among the most versatile of garden trees. Known mainly for their foliage, especially their striking fall colors, they have many other beautiful qualities too - interesting bark, leaf shapes and sizes, plant form and habit and many species also have very attractive flowers.

Whatever the size or style of your garden, from courtyard to parkland, there is a Maple to suit!
