Product Details

Platanus orientalis Minaret is a cultivar of Plane tree with a highly dissected leaf.  Originally from Asia Minor and India, the Oriental plane has long been planted as a shade tree owing to its widely spreading branches.

This cultivar of Oriental Plane has very deeply dissected, large, bright green leaves, which have 5 lobes.  In autumn they turn yellow and brown before falling.  As the tree matures the bark forms a patchwork effect by flaking off in sections in the same way that London Plane does.

Platanus orientalis Minaret produces a large, round headed tree at maturity.  It is a tough contender that will tolerate air pollution and compaction and does well on all soils, including clay.

This tree works very well in large parklands and estates, where it can be extremely long lived and grow to its maximum potential.  That said, like the London Plane tree, this specimen is a prime candidate for pollarding or pleaching, as the attractive bark and architectural nature of the foliage makes it a great choice for this.

Mature Height: 20m+
