Acer platanoides f. drummondii is a cultivar of the Norway maple tree (Acer platanoides). It is also known as the Drummond's variegated Norway maple or the Variegated Norway maple.

This cultivar is known for its striking foliage, which features green leaves with creamy-white edges. The variegation is most prominent in the spring and early summer, but the leaves may turn entirely green as they mature. In the autumn, the leaves turn a brilliant yellow before falling off.
