Drummondii is a variegated form of Norway maple, only some 100 years old. The decades from its birth proved its popularity which is still very high. The leaves are beautifully creamy white variegated at the margins, with bright green centres.

Apart from pruning at the end of winter, should you wish to trim the crown to keep it smaller, it needs almost no maintenance at all. Just remove branches with reverted leaves to keep its varigated habit.

It grows medium fast and is not large. It will also fit in small gardens. This variety does not like too much direct sunlight in summer. The leaves are prone to sunscald. Grow it in any well-drained soil. Fully hardy to -34°C (USDA zone 4).
