Acer platanoides 'Crimson Sentry' is a medium-sized, narrowly upright, deciduous columnar with a dense, egg-shaped crown and beautiful foliage. Shiny five-lobed leaves are raspberry red in spring, dark red to purple throughout the summer, and bright red in autumn. Clusters of inconspicuous, yellow-green flowers emerge on bare branches before leaves in early spring and are followed by winged nuts, samaras. Crimson Sentry Norway Maple can grow in any type of well-drained soil, but it doesn’t like peaty soils and soils with stagnant groundwater. It is ideal for tough positions, even exposed coastal positions because it is resistant to heat, drought and harsh winds. Very resilient and low maintenance plant. Acer platanoides 'Crimson Sentry' is used in parks and as a solitary. It tolerates air pollution well, therefore, it is suitable for planting in cities and industrial areas. Because of its narrow form, perfect for smaller spaces and tighter locations.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
