    'Crimson King' is a red-leaved cultivar noted for its rich maroon leaves that last throughout the summer. More compact and tends to grow slower than other maples. Maroon-yellow flowers appear in clusters before the foliage in spring. Although small, the flowers have interesting ornamental value. Flowers give way to purple samaras (to 2" long) with horizontally spreading wings.
