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 125-240cm 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 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.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
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.
UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details.
