Acer campestre

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

In forum: Acer campestre

Clusters of small, yellow-green flowers are followed in August and September by brown winged fruit, carried in pairs. This plant is a traditional species to use in a mixed wildlife hedge where its height can be controlled.

Fair play to you Fi,
I don't think you're being a hypocrite - as far as I'm aware Acer palmatum hasn't hybridised with Acer campestre yet! Fairly evidently most garden plants aren't a threat to our native species and long may it stay that way.
As long as people like you are active and vocal and interested in issues like this then I think these vulnerable species do have a future. keep it up!
All best,
