Sycamore Tree Seedlings - Plantanus Occadentalis

Sycamore Tree, or Platanus Occidental, is a beautiful and unique looking tree. It is not picky and can grow in a wide range of soil compositions with ease. It is a fast-growing tree and will also produce red flowers during the early spring months of the year.  This tree is easy to grow, only needing space to grow and develop in the garden. Traditionally, the wood from sycamore trees are handy, often being used in the production of violins and furniture. A seedling is going to eventually grow into a tall tree, ranging from 75-100 feet at full maturity. The bark is beautiful and varies from an off-white color when it's fresh, and changes to a darker red color as it ages. The broad 5-lobed leaves are unique and aesthetically pleasing in any garden setting. The tree will offer shade and environmental protection for some mammals in the garden. Fruit will start to appear on the tree during the Fall, usually in October depending on climate. These fruits will split open to release seeds and will remain on the tree until it is cold and blustery outside, often through Winter. Interestingly enough, one tree can produce 10,000 seeds per season. Most people know these seeds as "helicopters" because of the propeller wing that forms to help the propagation and spreading process. These trees stand tall and are empowering in the way they look over the garden. They are often symbols of strength and eternity so that a sycamore seedling will add an element of peace and consistency to any garden.
