Acer platanoides Fairview is derived from a seedling of ‘Crimson King’. Like the species, this tree has discrete yellow flowers that appear in spring and contrast fantastically with the deep red foliage as the leaves first emerge; they gradually harden to a bronze color by late summer. Acer platanoides Fairview is extremely useful as an urban tree, as not only is it extremely tolerant of most soil conditions, air pollution and drought, contrary to the species, it also has a very upright oval habit. This medium sized tree is a tough performer and is useful in bringing color to a scheme in a measured amount without becoming too overpowering at maturity. It is also a lovely choice for avenue planting.
