  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: vigorous
  • Flowering period: April to May

    Dark green leaves with creamy-white margins turning orange in autumn and small clusters of red-tinged, yellow spring flowers. This handsome, round-headed tree is possibly the best variegated Norway maple. An excellent specimen tree for a medium-sized garden, it is pollution-tolerant and copes well on most soils, including clay.

  • Garden care: Add a top-dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser around the base of the plant in late spring. No routine pruning is required, just remove any dead, damaged or crossing branches in late autumn or winter when they are fully dormant.

  • Q:

    How can we stop Powdery Mildew on our Norway Maple tree?

    Hi. We purchased a Norway Maple tree around 3 years ago from Crocus, and every year towards the end of the Summer, the leaves have a powdery white mildew on them. We do have clay soil, but try to keep the tree well watered in dry weather. We have also tried a mildew spray, this seems to prevent any further mildew from appearing at the time. Do you have any suggestions as to how we can stop it appearing this year? Many thanks for your time. Fiona

  • Q:

    Fungus and dry leaves on Acer?

    Hi there, I have noticed in the last week that one of my Acers has developed very dry yellowed leaves and a white soft fungus on its bark, what do you think this could be? My other Acers are fine, but I'm worried that this will spread. What can I do to remove/avoid this? Kind regards

  • Q:

    Is there an evergreen Acer?

    Could I just ask if there is an Acer that is not 'deciduous' but 'evergreen'?

    • A:

      Sadly not as all Acers are deciduous.

Autumn Colour

Perhaps it is because the colours of autumn are so variable in the UK that we value them all the more when they appear. As levels of sunlight fall in autumn and the days become shorter, photosynthesis is no longer effective. For the tree, leaves tha
