Design Ideas: This dwarf, more narrow form of Norway Maple, much smaller than Crimson King, is perfect for narrow spaces and smaller gardens. Use this dark purple tree in lieu of beech to create bold color effects in large landscapes. Display against blue or gold tinted evergreens. Stand against tall light colored buildings for hearty contrast. Line up into a sculptural windrow. Try a pair to mark the entry to a drive or homesite. Suitable size to plant under power lines.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Tolerates periodic drought, when established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
