American Sycamore (Platanus occidentalis)

With the ability to grow huge, sycamore needs a large area to thrive. Brown bark exfoliates to reveal mottled white inner bark, making it identifiable from a distance. Fruit is a brown ball which shatters into unpoblematic seeds. Leaves can be quite large. Medium moisture requirement. Native to floodplains. *Collected from a tree that exhibits Anthracnose resistance
