Through the Woodland and on the Systematic Beds, hoops of orange and yellow crown imperial bells sporting a tuft of bright green leaves are standing in joyful crowds.

Sycamore Maple

Acer pseudoplatanus
Aceraceae (Maple family)
The sycamore is a hardy tree abundant all over Britain. Opinions diverge as to when it was introduced, varying from Roman times to as late as 17th century, and it is also possible that some highland trees are native. The Botanic Garden’s two fine specimens stand by Hobson’s Conduit, the man-made river built in 1610 to bring fresh water into the City, that forms the western border to the Garden.
