Field Maple

Acer campestre
Field Maple has received the RHS Award of Garden Merit

The Field Maple is often overshadowed by more exotic Acers, but makes a fine large specimen tree. It can also be used to form tall hedges.

Like many other maple species the autumn leaf colours are a particular feature.
