Acer drummondii Maple Standard Trees

Acer platanoides drummondii, commonly known as the Harlequin or Drummond Maple, is a variety of Norway maple with variegated leaves. They have the classic maple star shape with a bright green centre and creamy margin. Suitable for a medium-sized garden. Acer drummondii  produces small clusters of pale yellow flowers called corymbs in April, before the branches get covered in foliage. The leaves look great when the full sun shines through them. In autumn, they turn a clean, shining yellow, sometimes with orange tones, that looks great in a mixed stand with other maple varieties. The mature bark is steely grey with vertical fissures that reveal rusty flashes of deeper wood. They can reach a height of about 12 metres. We also grow another ornamental Norway Maple variety, Acer Crimson Sentry.

Browse all of our other varieties of garden tree.

Drummondii is about half the size of a wild Norway Maple, so is a good choice for a medium-sized garden.
If you have a smaller garden, you may consider training your tree into a bush. This maple naturally has quite a short trunk, and responds well to being pruned into a more compact form.

Reversion: This tree doesn't need pruning to keep a neat rounded shape, but if you notice any branches that are bearing green leaves with little or no variegation, cut them off as soon as they appear in spring, or they will encourage other branches to do the same.

This tree was bred at the Drummond Nursery in Scotland, around 1910.
