The crown grows unevenly making this variety less suitable for the urban landscape. The tree tolerates watering perfectly, so there are many different shapes in the assortment. The flowering period of field maple comes in April, with small yellow-green flowers having the highest nectar and dust ratio. Bees and other insects worship them. The fruit is small and red. In autumn they become big and brown. The beautifully toothed leaves of the field maple are bronze-colored at the time of flowering, turning green in summer and warm golden yellow in autumn.
