Acer Campestre Elsrijk or Field Maple Elsrijk is a Dutch variety of Field Maple, best known for its conical growth habit and excellent autumn colour. Undemanding and robust, this deciduous tree is highly versatile and can be used to line pathways or grown as a street tree. When compared to the regular Acer Campestre, the variety Elsrijk has a dense, conical to oval crown and smaller leaves. The lobed foliage starts out as bright green and darkens over the summer. In autumn, this attractive cultivar is at its best, as the leaves turn to warm tones of yellow, orange and reddish. Even though the corymb flowers that appear in the spring are insignificant and do not have ornamental value, they attract many beneficial pollinators.
Easy to grow and care for, Acer Campestre Elsrijk tolerates both full sun and partial shade. This versatile tree can thrive in most soil types, including chalky soils. For best results, plant Acer Campestre Elsrijk in a medium-fertile, well-drained soil.
The Field Maple Elsrijk variety was first introduced in 1953 in the Netherlands. A European native, this ornamental tree is fully hardy in the United Kingdom and can survive even if the temperatures drop to 20 degrees below zero. A truly robust variety, this variety of maple will not be bothered by salt sprays, city pollution or strong winds, which makes it an ideal candidate for coastal and urban gardens. Considered small to medium-sized, Field Maple Elsrijk grows to be between 7 and 12 meters high when fully mature. Its dense, slightly egg-shaped crown can be up to 5 metres wide. The crown starts out as a narrow cone and forms a broader, oval shape as the tree develops. This cultivar is rarely affected by any serious diseases or pests.
With its elegant form and exceptional resistance, Acer Campestre Elsrijk is a great choice for urban and city gardens. The dense, uniformed crown offers architectural value and is best appreciated when this cultivar is planted en masse. Ideal for lining pathways, avenues or streets, this maple variety can also be grown in mixed borders or as a patio tree, where it provides shade and multiple seasons of interest.
