The Silver Maple is a native of the north-east of North America, but grows readily in the UK and is popular because of its graceful stately presence. It makes a good focal point in a large open space.
The green leaves have an attractive cut lobed shape, with a silvery green underside.
It also produces a mass of green-yellow flowers in early spring.
In autumn the leaves turn yellow and gold.
