  • The Acer sempervirens is a semi-evergreen or evergreen small tree or large shrub, this is a great maple for small gardens, for the patio or bonsai. It is one of the most drought- and heat-tolerant species in the genus, occurring on dry, sunny hillsides at moderate elevations. It is often a shrubby tree with smaller, evergreen, leathery, glossy dark green leaves. The bark on the Cretan Maple is dark grey, smooth in young trees, becoming scaly and shallowly fissured in mature trees. The new leaves have a distinctive, reddish colour. A slow growing species, rarely offered. We have freshly potted starter plants in a 7cm square pot, ready to be posted.
