Acer negundo 'Flamingo' is a distinctive, variegated cultivar of the Box Elder maple tree, renowned for its stunning tricolor foliage displaying a mix of pink, white, and green, giving it a flamingo-like appearance. The leaves, mainly green during early spring, gain more variegation as they mature, adding to the tree's visual appeal.

This deciduous tree is fast-growing and adaptable, able to thrive in a variety of soil types and environmental conditions. It prefers well-drained soils and can grow in full sun to partial shade, reaching heights of up to 15-20 feet. The 'Flamingo' cultivar is particularly appreciated for its improved resistance to pests compared to the species.

The colorful foliage of Acer negundo 'Flamingo' serves as an attractive backdrop in landscapes, providing a splash of color to gardens and parks. This tree is a vital source of shelter and food for various bird species, enhancing biodiversity.

The hardiness and low-maintenance nature of Acer negundo 'Flamingo' make it a suitable choice for urban and suburban landscapes. However, gardeners should monitor its growth as it has the potential to become invasive in certain areas due to its vigorous growth habit and prolific seed production. Regular pruning is recommended to maintain its shape and manage its size.
