In cultivation since 1903, this form produces magnificently variegated foliage which has a wide, creamy white margin. It is widely known in North America as the Harlequin Maple.
Any shoots which show signs of reversion are best removed.
A medium to large tree with a rounded form.
This lovely variegated Norway Maple does well on most soil types tolerates air pollution and resists drought.
It is most vivid in the spring when the variegation is at its most vivid but summer winds can bruise the leave margins of young trees which then scorch brown. This however is only superficial and does not affect its performance the following year.
This clone can provide vivid contrast within a garden, particularly against a dark evergreen backdrop so take care to place this tree as the results can be very rewarding
