Acer rubrum ‘Seka’

For sale by Bluebell Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

A rare new selection of Canadian Maple, Acer rubrum 'Sekka' has lovely red / orange autumn colours and occasional stems which are fasciated (flattened) in appearance.

This tree is new to us but looks as though it will be a little slower growing than a classic Acer rubrum.

Supplied Size: 10L containers (Available as quarter standards. These have a clear stem reaching a height of approx 80 cm with a young grafted head)
