  • Maple
SKU: 1da7a27f9f9d Categories: ,


Possibly one of the best variegated Norway maples available, this handsome, large, round-headed tree produces clusters of small yellow flowers on bare stems in April, followed by pale green, deeply lobed leaves with a wide cream margin which turn orange in autumn. An excellent specimen tree for any medium-sized garden, copes well on most soils, including clay and drought resistant and pollution-tolerant. Remove any stems showing signs of reversion as they appear.
