Oriental Plane Seed

Platanus orientalis

£3.50 inc. VAT

The Oriental Plane is a large deciduous tree with peeling bark. Young leaves are hairy, but smooth when older, deeply lobed and casts quite a deep shade. The autumn colour is pale bronze-purple. Round finely spined fruit that hang on into winter, look like mini hedgehogs. It is one of the parents of the London Plane and possibly the tree under which Hippocrates taught in Greece. In southern Europe it is a common street tree.
