Why plant Drummond Norway Maple?

Drummond Norway Maple will brighten your landscape with a canopy full of lemon-yellow flowers in spring and variegated foliage all season. This sturdy, easy-to-grow shade tree boasts colorful Maple leaves with creamy yellow to white margins that pop against their green centers. Plant this flashy tree mid-lawn or near the street to bring some pizzazz to your front-yard landscaping, or use it as a pretty shade maker around back to cool the barbecue area, deck, or patio. With a cold drink in one hand and a bratwurst in the other, you'll admire your fine choice - which will only grow more impressive each year!

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.

How to use Drummond Norway Maple in the landscape?

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 Plant Drummond Norway Maple

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 tip, though, when growing this tree: Don’t try to grow much in its root zone—this is a surface-rooting tree!

How To Water

Drummond Norway Maple prefers to be planted in a well draining soil that remains moist. During the hot summer months, be sure to keep your tree well watered!

How To Fertilize

Your Drummond Norway Maple should be fertilized with the Elements Starter Plant Food when freshly planted. From there, you should fertilize in spring and fall each year!

How To Prune

The best time to prune your Drummond would be in late winter to early spring. They may 'bleed' a little sap, but that is no cause for concern! Be sure to monitor your tree for all-green leaves and prune those branches out. You don’t want to lose that snazzy variegation!

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our big trees, sizes XL and bigger, require expert delivery and care, that means our extra-large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care. We deliver your trees and plants directly to you. Ask Bower & Branch about planting services – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*For Big trees and Shrubs, Size XL and bigger: Review our Seasonal Shipping Timelines and Policy here.

Your trees and plants are grown across the United States at various Bower & Branch Growers. Depending on your location, your plant orders may be shipped from various locations. Please expect orders with multiple items to be delivered over a number of days as a result. Orders made up of numerous items or selections will not arrive at your home on the same day.

Shipping Delays:

From time to time, Bower & Branch Growers may determine to delay order shipment based on various factors for plant health. Weather in your region, as well as, where your plants are grown, is always considered when shipping. Extreme weather conditions may delay some or all of your order. Bower & Branch allows our Growers to make final shipping decisions based solely to benefit your trees and plants’ health and success.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
