Description

The Hedge Maple is native to most of Europe (in Scotland, it is the only native maple) and has been naturalized in North America and New Zealand. It is a slow grower and has deeply fissured, cork-like bark. The leaves have five, blunt, rounded lobes. ''Evelyn' is also sold under the name QUEEN ELIZABETH™. It is distinguished from the species by having more uniform upright branching with a 45ø branch angle, larger leaves and a faster first year growth rate. It prefers full sun to part shade with even moist soil and is hardy to Zone 5. It can reach a mature height of 35 feet with a similar spread.
