Acer platanoides Princeton Gold is a medium-sized, fast-growing, deciduous tree with upright, spreading, broadly columnar habit and bright golden foliage with red petioles. It retains this beautiful and attractive colour throughout spring and summer, slowly turning green. Clusters of small, inconspicuous, yellow flowers emerge on bare branches before leaves show up. Princeton Gold Norway Maple is very easy to grow in a wide range of moist, well-drained soils. It likes full sun and partial shade. It is very hardy and resilient, not much susceptible to leaf scorch, resistant to drought, frost, and wind, though it may need to be sheltered form harsh winds. Beautiful sunny golden leaves make Acer platanoides Princeton Gold an impressive focal point or specimen plant. It tolerates air pollution well, therefore, it is suitable for planting in cities and industrial areas. A great addition to any medium-sized or large garden.

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).
