General tree description
Acer x dieckii is medium to large tree, growing rapidly up to 25 metres in height. It is a hybrid of uncertain parentage but may be a form of Acer platanoides (Norway maple), with which it has much in common. It has large leaves, 12 to 25cm in width, with three to seven triangular lobes. The leaves turn dark red-brown or old gold colour in autumn.
