Platanus racemosa wrightii

California Sycamore

Sycamores, or Plane Trees, are wonderful in parks and along avenues, where they have ample room to grow. Not only do they lose their large maple-like leaves in autumn, but their bark peels off in large patches to reveal the white inner bark. Use their long stalks with brown, round seed clusters in dried flower arrangements. Some species tolerate city conditions, and all tolerate severe pruning. Susceptible to blight and, in the desert, chlorosis. Leaf anthracnose is a problem in cool, moist seasons and climates. Rake and dispose of dead leaves.
