Platanus x acerifolia
London Plane Tree
This tree is a hybrid between the American Sycamore (Platanus
occidentalis) and the Oriental Plane Tree (Platanus orientalis).
It has attractive maple-like leaves and particularly handsome bark
that flakes off in green and ivory patches, although it can get
rather bumpy and warty when the tree ages. A fast grower, it is
a tough and versatile tree that withstands virtually any abuse and
is a favorite for planting in difficult places.
