It also has an above-average resistance to frost cracking. No need to worry about subzero temperatures damaging this tree, which means one less thing to think about.

As the tree is getting established, you'll want to be a little more conscientious about watering. However, it'll do just fine on its own for the most part after the first year.

Every couple of years, you might consider pruning the stray branches to keep its pyramidal form pristine. If pruning is something you're interested in doing at any point, simply grab a sharp pair of shears in winter and snip off the troublesome branches.

You don't have to settle for either four seasons of interest or low maintenance. With the Exclamation!™ London Planetree you can have both! Order your own today from our expert growers at Nature Hills Nursery!
