Product details

A really eye-catching cultivar first grown in the 1860s, it is a medium tree with a rounded habit.

The leaves of Acer pseudoplatanus Leopoldii begin yellowish pink turning green later and splashed with yellow and pink.

This lovely Sycamore is particularly attractive from leaf emergence in the spring to the early summer months.

Like all Sycamore, Acer pseudoplatanus Leopoldii tolerates air pollution and thrives in most soils and is particularly useful for coastal sites where it can make an effective defence against strong winds and salt-laden air. It is a great choice for exposed sites that require brightening up with some colour.

It is not prone to the problem of reverting back to green like Acer platanoides Drummondii.

Mature height: 17-22m

Mature spread: 7-12m
