Acer x freemanii Jeffers RedAcer x freemanii Jeffers Red
A hybrid cross between Acer saccharinum and Acer rubrum that inherits the best of both worlds with good vigour and good autumn colour. This tree is especially suited to the north of England where it is almost guaranteed to produce good autumn colour where Acer rubrum might not. It's mature height is around 15 metres in the north of England.
This is one of the first trees to colour-up for autumn; but this also means that the leaves drop relatively early so it isn't one of the best trees for screeing (or for growing on a windy site for that matter). However; the autumn colour is such a bright vivid scarlet-red; which really shines with the sun on it that this tree is a must-have if you have space.
