The Acer Negundo Box Elder is a beautiful deciduous Acer. Its foliage is pinnate leaves that are light green with pale margins with yellow-green flowers that later turn white in summer through to yellow in Autumn. On occasion the branches may produce solid green foliage. If this is the case please remove. Its delicate colours are a perfect contrast to most garden shrubs and will be ideal as a feature point for the smaller garden.
What to expect. Your acer will arrive in a 5 litre pot and stand approximately 50/60cm tall excluding the pot. Foliage depends on the time of year purchased. Our photographs were taken in June 2016 here at the nursery,
