Prinz Handjery (Acer pseudoplatanus 'Prinz Handjery') is another beautiful sycamore maple we had to include in our maple collection. Prinz Handjery, is at its most dramatic in spring, when its young foliage an intense, almost glowing pink colour. It carries long-dripping yellow flowers. A somewhat slow- growing, compact headed tree, this tree is a good choice for a small garden where its height of 7m (23ft 4in) is not going to overwhelm.
Another outstanding feature of this small Maple is that the salmon pink leaves tend to last a little longer than other similar trees and the under side of the leaves are a pleasing purple colour (unless you don't like purple then you might be a bit agrannoyed).
Suitable for coastal and exposed locations with chalk and clay tolerant characteristics.
Feel free to hard prune at any time, the tree will respond well to almost any enthusiastic amateur learning their way with pruning shears. Testosterone charged idiots with chain saws are a completely different story.
Considered to be fully UK hardy meaning you can plant almost anywhere in the UK.
Expect a height of around 5 metres tall and the 5 metres wide but annual pruning will keep it to whatever size you like.
Prinz handjery is supplied at a height of 125-250cm in a 7-12L container, which means that the tree has an already established root system and therefore this tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
