The Hedge Maple is native to most of Europe (in Scotland, it is the only native maple) and has been naturalized in North America and New Zealand. It is a slow grower and has deeply fissured, cork-like bark. The leaves have five, blunt, rounded lobes. 'Carnival' is a dwarf cultivar (10 feet in height with a similar spread) with gray- green variegated foliage outlined in white and pink. The foliage turns bright yellow in the fall. It prefers rich, well-drained soil that is kept evenly moist in light or partial shade. This is also a good selection for Bonsai.
