This very pretty cultivar of Sycamore has light variegated foliage, emerging with splashes of pink and yellow in spring, turning more green/cream as the summer progresses. Particularly stunning in spring to early summer, the foliage is one of the most striking. Acer pseudoplatanus ‘Leopoldii’ has all of the qualities of its parent, Acer pseudoplatanus, being wonderfully tough and vigorous, with the added benefit of its vibrant ornamental qualities.
A medium to large tree of rounded habit at maturity, unlike some other variegated trees it does not revert back to green foliage over time.
Acer pseudoplatanus ‘Leopoldii’ is a vigorous tree that will tolerate most soil types, air pollution and is drought resistant. Trees that are tolerant to coastal conditions are very limited so this tree is perfect for schemes in an exposed or coastal location.
NOTE: Sycamore is poisonous to horses and therefore they should not be planted in or around paddocks.
Mature height: 17-22m
