Field Maple or Acer campestre hedge plants are a lovely UK native species and the UK’s only native Maple. Field Maple is known for its large lobed, mid-green foliage which turns buttery yellow in autumn just before the winged seed pods release. A fast-growing hedging plant, Field Maple is popularly grown in a Native Mix, though looks equally as attractive when grown alone.

Field Maple hedge (Acer campestre) description

A lovely native and hardy plant, Acer campestre has mid-green, five-lobed foliage which is prettily tinged with red in the spring. The seeds, like little helicopters, are closely followed by the stunning golden-yellow of the autumnal foliage which will brighten any garden. 

Best uses for Acer campestre

A fast grower, Field Maple is ideal for informal garden hedging, though it can be clipped to shape. Acer campestre is often used in Native mixes to add a splash of autumn colour and being suited to coastal and exposed sites it is a useful and versatile choice. Although deciduous, Acer campestre has fairly dense foliage and can form a good privacy screen when in full leaf. It also provides excellent shelter for local birds and wildlife through spring and summer.

Combine Field Maple hedging with

Try combining your Field Maple hedge with other native plants for a wildlife-friendly mix, or see our Mixed Hedging Packs for your convenience.

Growth rate of Field Maple

Field Maple is a fast grower and will achieve 40-60cm a year and is ideal for heights of 1-4m.

Care advice for Acer campestre hedges

Acer campestre is a tough hedging plant. It simply needs a light trim of the branch structure every winter until it's mature. Once it is fully mature, a light trim at any time is sufficient. Please view the best4hedging Care and Planting instructions in our Advice section.
