Acer platanoides Drummondii

Norway Maple Drummondii

A variegated variety of the Norway maple dating back to 1903, Acer platanoides 'Drummondii' is a medium-sized deciduous tree whose deep green, five-lobed leaves have broad cream margins. Leaves are tinged shrimp-pink as they open; in autumn they turn orange. Small clusters of red-tinged yellow flowers in spring ripen to double-winged samaras, like a sycamore’s, in autumn. A vigorous, fairly fast-growing tree with a round-headed, spreading shape, it is probably the best variegated Norway maple, and easy to grow. Very hardy and wind-resistant, it nevertheless benefits from a semi-sheltered position to prevent damage to the young leaves. An excellent specimen tree, and a good choice for colder areas and city pollution. Remove any branches which revert to plain green.
