Sycamore

Platanus occidentalis

From a centerpiece for native gardens to a well-behaved yet fast-growing shade tree, the sycamore offers many possibilities for the landscape. The American native sycamore grows best in a large, wild garden. Its trunk bark peels in large sheets, exposing pale color underneath that is visible from a distance, for winter interest. Sycamores produce spurred seedballs that persist on the tree through winter. They prefer a moist soil but will tolerate some drought, air pollution, and alkaline soil.
