Acer drummondii Maple 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. Acer drummondii Maple trees can reach a height of about 12 metres. We also grow another ornamental Norway Maple variety - Acer Crimson Sentry.

Acer platanoides 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. Acer drummondii Maple naturally has quite a short trunk and responds well to being pruned into a more compact form.

History & uses of Harlequin / Drummond Maple
