sycamore seed

Fondly known as ‘helicopters’, the graceful, spinning seeds of the sycamore are borne in pairs and twirl to the ground when ripe.   Sycamores are well known for their longevity. These trees are the very symbol of protection as they can grow to outstanding proportions. Their beautifully marked trunks with their mottled white and grey patches, earned them the nickname of 'ghosts of the forest' by the Native Americans, with many folk tales being told of their magical and mysterious nature.
