Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus)

Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus)

Observation - Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus). Description: Plenty of these seedlings in the garden at the moment. Almost all have 2 seed leaves but a few have 3: presumably they've been damaged at some stage. Sycamore (Acer pseudoplanatus) is the likely ID but Paperbark maple (Acer griseum) is also a possibility.

Plenty of these seedlings in the garden at the moment. Almost all have 2 seed leaves but a few have 3: presumably they've been damaged at some stage. Sycamore (Acer pseudoplanatus) is the likely ID but Paperbark maple (Acer griseum) is also a possibility. Both species are present locally but the A griseum is too immature to produce all the seeds that have germinated.
