Product Details

This tree, developed in the Netherlands in the mid 1970’s, has pretty young foliage that emerges with a wide, soft pink margin, eventually turning to white over time. Hard pruning during the winter time encourages the best display of foliage when buds burst the following spring.

Acer negundo Flamingo, like its parent the Box Elder, can be considered resistant to the perils of Honey fungus and therefore is a useful selection for any garden where this has been a problem. A versatile tree which is tolerant of all soil conditions, performing particularly well on heavy clay soils, and is capable of withstanding some water logging so is useful for waterside planting.

Like its parent, it is tolerant of air pollution and soil compaction. Unlike some other variegated trees, Acer negundo Flamingo, does not experience much in the way of physical damage due to high winds during the spring and summer season and thus is an extremely wise selection of variegated tree for gardens which do experience exposure to wind.

A medium sized, round headed tree which is perfect to add a dash of colour to your garden in the spring time!

Mature height: 7-12m
