Acer platanoides, or Crimson King maple, grows throughout most of the United States with the exception of some coastal areas, including Florida and parts of California and Texas. It produces crimson or purple leaves in the summer and exhibits a moderate growth rate.
A moderate or medium growth rate means that the Crimson King maple grows between 1 and 2 feet per year, according to Utah State University Extension.
The Crimson King maple sometimes grows very slowly, according to Iowa State University Extension. Plant this tree in full sun in nutrient-rich, moist, well-drained soil to encourage maximum growth.
The Crimson King maple reaches a height of 35 to 45 feet with a 25- to 30-foot width, according to the University of Florida Extension.
