Platanus x acerifolia

Plane tree, London plane

Price: €14.95

A wonderful tree, with stunning bark and large maple-like leaves. The London plane tree is frequently used as a street tree, and is planted in many cities worldwide, including Dublin. Unusually for a tree which can grow very large, it is well suited to clipping or pleaching - in other words, it can be kept at a desired height with regular pruning. The bark is mottled and attractive, the leaves are dark green, turning yellow in autumn. A good tree to provide screening in city gardens, where it can be kept pleached and clipped, or allowed to grow to its full size in large parks or gardens. Very resistant to drought and good for difficult conditions. 120-150 cms tall plants, Irish-grown, in a 7-10 litre container. Please note, items displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops.  (A)
