This is a medium-sized deciduous shade tree with purple foliage from spring through fall. Native to Europe and Western Asia, it will top out at 50 feet with a 20-30 foot spread. Its natural shape is has a dense, symmetrical rounded crown. Best in full sun, it is tolerant of many soil types. It does well throughout the Northwest and in California. It is drought resistant once established and bears red flowers before the leaves appear in the spring. The leaves are 7” across, have five pointed shallow lobes, somewhat resembling those of a sugar maple. A shallow root system makes it unsuitable for use around hardscape but it is an excellent shade tree for parks or other wide open spaces.
