Acer campestre ‘Postelense'
Acer can be deciduous trees or large shrubs with paired, often palmately-lobed leaves and small flowers followed by characteristic winged fruits. Many have fine autumn colour, and some have ornamental stems.
Hand grafted and propagated at Lime Cross Nursery, Acer campestre ‘Postelense' is commonly called hedge maple. It is native to Europe and western Asia, frequently being found on plains, hills and along rivers. It is also sometimes commonly called field maple (campestre meaning from fields). This is a small, low-branched, dense, rounded, deciduous tree or large multi-stemmed shrub. As the common name suggests, it may be pruned to form a tall hedge.
