Acer campestre Hedge Plants Description

Field Maple (Acer campestre) plants are a wonderful addition to any garden. Featuring distinctive 5-lobed leaves, Acer campestre brings a colourful display to its surroundings with reddish-green leaves in spring and summer, turning a rich golden yellow shade in autumn.

During spring Field Maple hedge plants bloom with small yellow-green flowers which blossom at the same time its new distinctive leaves open up. A superb hedge plant for wildlife, the flowers of the Acer campestre provide pollen for bees while the small winged 'helicopter' fruits during autumn are popular among smaller mammals.

Suitable for most soil types, Acer campestre is best planted in full sun or partial shade (full shade is not recommended). Field Maple plants are fast growing, at a rate of 30-60cm per year and are easy to maintain at 1m-5m height - while they can reach up to 20 metres height at full maturity.

An easy to maintain and resilient hedge plant, Field Maple hedge is an excellent choice whether planted as a single species or combined with other native hedge plants.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.
