Nanum is a dwarf variety of hedge maple, suitable for small gardens and town avenues with limited space. It grows slowly into a small tree some 2.5m tall and wide. The leaves are deep green, with 3-5 rounded lobes, turning yellow in autumn.

The crown is naturally rounded and compact. Its habit is dense and there is no need to prune it to maintain the shape or density. Only if you want to keep the tree smaller, cut it at the end of winter.

Maples are not picky about soil type, but thrive in semi-fertile, moist, slightly acidic soil. They withstand wind, drought, air pollution and restricted root space. Fully hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4).
