Carnival

Acer campestre Carnival

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.
