Acer campestre Hedge Plants Description

Boasting five-lobed leaves that turn a delightful green-red colour in spring and summer, followed by a gorgeous buttery yellow colour in autumn, Aces campestre is a stunning shrub to have in the garden. While the Field Maple leaves are striking and aesthetic, this hedge plant also embraces small yellow-green flowers in spring and winged seeds that resemble helicopters in autumn.

An essential benefit to planting Acer campestre is that this plant enjoys most soil conditions and positions. These include coastal, chalky and exposed sites. However, Acer campestre is not suitable for full shade and flourishes more profoundly in sunny conditions.

For more information on which plants are suitable for exposed sites, please take a look at Hedges Direct's Hedging for Exposed Sites on our website. Here you will be able to find a variety of other shrubs that are suitable for these conditions.

Another benefit to Acer campestre is that it is a hardy hedge plant and only requires trimming in winter until it has reached a mature growth. Once Field Maple has achieved maturity, we advise light trimming at any time.

Field Maple is a UK native hedging species, which is also included in our Mixed Native hedging selection. You can view our full range of Mixed Native Hedging Packs on our website for more information.

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.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Field Maple should be trimmed to shape at the beginning of winter.
