Rich coloration makes 'Crimson Queen' a gem in mixed borders or as a specimen plant. Noted for holding its leaf color well in the heat of summer, it is dense and vigorous while developing into a mounding, pendulous shape. Serrated lobes are alluring as they open red in spring, mature to reddish purple, and turn bright red in autumn. Combine this durable landscape plant with Geraniums and Painted Ferns. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
The 150 species of Maples have a wide distribution, from Europe and Asia to North and Central America. Their winged fruits twirl like helicopters when they drop, but their often colorful, lobed, or finely cut leaves are the real attraction.
