A large, long-lived and majestic tree best suited to large gardens, rural blocks and avenue plantings.
The London Plane is fast growing, attaining a height of 16m in 20 years with very large mid-green, maple-like leaves. It can eventually reach 20m tall and 15m wide. At maturity, the bark flakes and peels, creating a very attractive, multi-coloured effect.
Very hardy - tolerated poor soils, hot sun and wind, dry conditions and severe cold.
Prepare the soil as per our notes for "how to plant a tree".
