    I have been looking up the flamingo acer negundo, variegated small tree. In researching online, different sites say different things about its height and spread. I live in Zone 7ish. Does anyone have one and can tell me how tall and wide this one grows? Thanks

    Although perhaps somewhat less vigorous should be expected to grow as large as the long-common 'Variegatum' in time. However, both are prone to reversion and might best be managed as foliage shrubs - cut back periodically to maintain young growth free of reversion.

    Ron, thanks for your response. What's reversion?

    Ron I looked it up and for those like me that had not heard of that, it means when you variegated varieties revert back to a solid colour, losing their variegation.
