A hardy fast growing large deciduous tree Acer platanoides ‘Emerald Queen’ has a good upright form with a dense, symmetrical, rounded to oval crown making it ideal for avenue and urban planting. The bark is beautifully patterned with vertical and interlaced ridges.
Clusters of yellow-green scented flowers appear on bare branches in spring before the leaves appear followed by green winged fruits. The large five lobbed leaves are bright green throughout the summer and turn a butter yellow in the autumn occasionally finishing with orange. The effect becomes more and more spectacular as the tree grows to maturity due to the size of the tree.
