Red leafed Hedge Maple (Acer campestre 'Royal Rubies')

Hedge maples are just that: maples to be made into hedges; the reason is that the limbs go everywhichaway filling up all available space; there are a couple of cultivars that lend themselves to stand alone semi-shade status (Elizabeth, eg), but generally the species lends itself to hedgeness (hedgity?). Royal Rubies is a fair large growing cultivar with deep red leaves in the spring which turn green in the summer when it provides a showy mass of bright red seeds (hence the name). Way hardy. zone 4.
