Acer pseudoplatanus Leopoldii

Acer pseudoplatanus Leopoldii is a cultivar of the common sycamore tree (Acer pseudoplatanus), a deciduous tree native to central Europe and southwestern Asia. The Leopoldii cultivar is known for its striking foliage, which is variegated with creamy-white margins and green centers.

This tree typically grows to a height of 15-25 meters (50-80 feet) with a spread of 10-15 meters (30-50 feet). It has a dense, rounded crown and a broad, spreading habit. The leaves are large, with 5-7 lobes and prominent veins, and turn yellow in the fall before dropping off for the winter.

Acer pseudoplatanus Leopoldii is a popular ornamental tree, prized for its attractive foliage and hardiness. It is commonly planted in parks and gardens, and can also be used as a street tree. This cultivar prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soils, and is tolerant of urban pollution.

Like other common sycamores, Acer pseudoplatanus Leopoldii is also known for its sap, which can be harvested and used to make maple syrup. The wood of this tree is also used for furniture, flooring, and musical instruments.
