The large, velvety, star-shaped leaves of Arizona Sycamore turn golden-brown in fall, and are a truly unique sight in the arid southwest. This deciduous tree’s mottled white bark is equally distinctive, resembling camouflage as it peels in large patches; lending an uncommon brightness to desert winter landscapes that tend to be primarily brown and grey.
Arizona Sycamore’s springtime flowers are inconspicuous, but in fall its branches bear clusters of seed pods that decorate the tree into winter. This Arizona native is one of the largest deciduous trees for our climate, and when compared to the very similar London Planetree, older Arizona Sycamore specimens have a more picturesque, irregular canopy.
