Although, from what I've been able to gather, they're just as invasive. Reaching 35 to 45 feet tall with a spread of about 25 to 30 feet, Crimson King Norway maple trees bear a purplish-green foliage in summer -- sort of a "fall foliage" prior to the fall, if you will. If anything, that color may deepen to a maroon in autumn, before the leaves turn brown and drop off the tree.

Don't confuse this specimen with Crimson Queen Japanese maple trees.
