Carnival is an attractive form of the Field Maple, featuring variegated leaves with cream-white margins and light pink growing tips. In spring, from a distance, you could almost mistake it for a white-blossom cherry tree, such as the extent of the white variegation.
In good conditions in the UK it will become a small tree of up to 5m - or a large bush in less favourable conditions - making it a good choice if you are looking for a Field Maple for a smaller garden. It is also suitable for planting in parks and community spaces.
You can pre-order now for delivery from late September 2021 for pot grown trees (or early December for bare-root). You do not need to pay at this stage - just add items to the basket and checkout as usual.

Carnival benefits from hard pruning in winter, this will increase the size and colour of the leaves.
Like most Field Maples, Carnival is a versatile tree and will tolerate both acidic or alkaline (chalky) soils, and also soils prone to flooding over winter.
