Acer pseudoplatanus Worley

Golden sycamore Worley

An old German cultivar of the native sycamore, Acer pseudoplatanus Worley is distinguished by its foliage colour; the large, toothed, 5-lobed leaves on red leaf-stalks emerge yellow, turning yellowish-green in summer. The young leaves may scorch in strong sunlight. Golden sycamore Worley is a medium-sized, deciduous tree with an irregular, rounded crown and smooth grey bark, less vigorous than the common sycamore. It will thrive in almost any soil, and is highly cold- and wind-resistant. The insignificant dangling racemes of flowers appear with the leaves, and are followed by double-winged fruit, known as samaras, which seed about freely. Be aware that the fruit and leaves are toxic to horses.
