centralparknyc: The London plane (Platanus x acerifolia) is a

The London plane (Platanus x acerifolia) is a tree that almost any city dweller will recognize. ๐ŸŒณ These trees can grow up to 90 feet tall, and have exfoliating bark that peels away to show white, pale green, or light brown layers. London plane trees are famous for their ability to withstand difficult urban growing conditions such as air pollution, root compaction, flooding, and drought. ๐Ÿƒ These attributes were perhaps first discovered in 1645 in London by botanist John Tradescant. The tree is a hybrid between the American sycamore and Oriental plane trees. The flowers are borne in spherical inflorescences on stems that hang off the branches, usually in pairs of two, and the seed balls slowly break up over the winter. London plane trees are especially recognizable to New Yorkers because the logo closely resembles a London plane leaf. Have you seen this species in the Park or in your hometown? ๐Ÿ“: Natural Areas Technician Mimi Gunderson ๐Ÿ“ท: Assistant Manager of Natural Areas Alex Hodges

Broomsedge (Andropogon virginicus) is a tall grass native to prairies and open woodlands in the Northeast. ๐ŸŒพ It germinates very easily from seed and is often used in prairie restorations. It can also be found growing along roadsides all over New York State. In the spring and summer, broomsedge is a light green color and can grow up to four feet tall. In the fall, this grass turns a reddish-yellow-orange and releases its seeds, which are attached to small feathery parachutes to help them travel. It retains this color throughout its winter dormancy and can brighten any landscape โ€” especially when the sunlight catches its seeds. ๐Ÿ“: Natural Areas Technician Mimi Gunderson ๐Ÿ“ท: Assistant Manager of Natural Areas Alex Hodges

centralparknyc: In this weekโ€™s #PeepThatPlant, weโ€™re featuring

In this weekโ€™s , weโ€™re featuring the lacebark pine (Pinus bungeana), a slow-growing evergreen tree with beautiful patchwork bark. ๐ŸŒฒ The bark peels off as the tree gets older, exposing layers that are white, olive, and sometimes silver. It can take up to 10 years before a tree starts showing the โ€œlaceyโ€ bark that this species is known for. Lacebark pines, native to China, arenโ€™t beautiful just because of their bark. They are evergreen, so they keep their dark green needles year-round โ€” a beautiful sight during bleak winter weather. ๐Ÿ“: Natural Areas Technician Mimi Gunderson
