Globe Maple Growing and Maintenance Tips

A great option when planting under overhead, power lines. Stem height will vary but typically grafted at 200 cm. Norway maples grow best in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. They are not particular as to soil type or pH and are known to be highly tolerant of urban pollution.
