Info

This hybrid selection of the London plane tree resulted from a controlled cross made by Dr. George Ware at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois, between P. orientalis (naturally anthracnose-resistant) and an anthracnose-resistant P. occidentalis parent. Selected for its uniform, upright-pyramidal habit, which is conical in its youth; a strong central leader; and attractive foliage. This plant is densely branched, has a moderate growth rate, is light-fruiting, and shows resistance to frost cracking and anthracnose. It is developing the attractive exfoliating bark expected of plane trees and will measure 60' in height with a 30' spread. The most upright London Plane tree in the market.
