“Acer platanoides Deborah is another seedling form Schwedleri which is a fast growing tree from Canada and makes a large tree with a rounded form. Introduced in the 1970s, the spring leaves are bright red, gradually turning to dark green. When the second flush appears there is a superb contrast between the red and the green foliage together. It does well on most soil types, tolerates air pollution and resists drought. The leaves have a distinctive wavy margin and colour to a rich orange/yellow in the autumn. Most suitable for parks, verges and large gardens.
Its newly emerging flush of spring red leaves are particularly effective against the profuse yellow flowers that are borne in April.”
