The Story

Norway Maple is a native of Scandinavian forests, but it also has a vast range extending into a few dozen other countries, including France, Greece, Poland, Russia, and Iran.  Consequently, this species has been grown in gardens for ages.  Having been introduced around 1903, the “Harlequin” Norway Maple is a relative newbie!  First to offer it was the nursery of Drummond and Sons in Stirling, Scotland.  The Drummond family was in the nursery business from around 1800 until 1981.  In days past, they were known for their breeding work with turnips.

The Details

Also known as Harlequin Maple, this variegated Maple is quite an eye-catcher! Yellow flower clusters appear in spring before the leaves. Dark green leaves have creamy white edges and turn yellow in fall. Drummond Norway Maple is a great choice for a shade tree in your yard or in open public spaces.

How to Grow

Like other Norway Maples, Drummond is an iron-clad tree.  It isn’t fast growing, but nothing—except for too-wet soil or the hot, humid climate of the Deep South—will keep it from chugging along.  Its seeds are sterile, so it won’t overstep its bounds with unwanted seedlings.  A couple of tips, though, when growing this tree:  Don’t try to grow much in its rootzone—this is a surface-rooting tree.  And monitor your tree for all-green leaves, and prune those branches out.  You don’t want to lose that snazzy variegation.
