The Norway maple is a fast-growing tree, eventually quite large but easily pruned to confine its spread for many years. It is a handsome species, spreading to make a satisfying rounded crown and sufficiently robust to be grown in exposed positions, even as a windbreak. The foliage of 'Crimson King' (originally a seedling of A. platanoides 'Schwedleri') is quite dramatic, dark reddish brown when young, becoming crimson purple for the rest of the year. The conspicuous flowers are deep yellow, tinged with red, gathered in large clusters which decorate the tree before the leaves appear. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
