The American Sycamore is very popular for residential landscaping because of its fast growth (up to 6 ft. a year) and thick canopy... which provides tons of shade.
You can count on your American Sycamore to quickly grow into a symmetrical shade tree or ornamental tree. Just plant and watch it grow! The tree's many branches develop large green palmate leaves that turn to gold in the fall.
Its dense leaves make it an excellent shade provider for your home… big leaves drop when the weather cools, allowing in plenty of sun when you need it most!
And it's so easy to grow!
• Adaptable to most soils
• Thrives in both warm and cold climates
• Grows just about anywhere, even harsh environments
• Just plant it in the ground and add water
This Sycamore develops smooth, white bark in the winter, adding additional seasonal interest. Plant one in your own yard and say good-bye to sweltering summer afternoons.
