Andrew Keys added this to 5 Amazing Small Maple Trees
Looking for all the world like a maple-holly hybrid, evergreen or Cretan maple (Acer sempervirens) hails from Greece, and being a Mediterranean plant, it thrives in climates with damp winters and droughty summers, as well as poor soil. It also has incredibly glossy, evergreen to semievergreen foliage, and it's cold hardy as far north as zone 6. I suspect this uncommon maple's hardiness is a bit untested in regions with humid summers — if you live east of the Mississippi and want to try it, I suggest planting it in a dry spot with lots of sun and lean, fast-draining soil. It grows to roughly 30 feet tall.Photo by Wikimedia Commons user Abrahami
