Acer pseudoplatanus Worleii, or Golden Sycamore, is an old German cultivar of the native sycamore. It is a medium-sized, rounded, deciduous tree with smooth gray bark and large, 5-lobed leaves, soft yellow in spring, green in summer, and golden in autumn. Inconspicuous, yellow green flowers emerge with leaves in spring and are followed by winged samaras. This plant is very resilient and easy to care for. It will grow without problems on any type of soil as long as it is well-drained. It prefers full sun or partial shade. Since it tolerates draught, wind, urban pollution and salt, it’s a popular choice for planting in cities and exposed sites. It can be a strong defence against strong winds and salt-laden air, therefore, perfect for use in coastal areas. It’s important to emphasize that Worelii’s leaves and fruit are highly poisonous for horses.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
