Arizona Sycamore

Lissa planted a lovely new Arizona sycamore (Platanus wrightii) yesterday morning. As it happens, she rather by accident planted it dead center in a line so that you can see it out the back window when you’re washing dishes.

Arizona sycamore

It’s native to riparian areas of southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico. Thanks to the Institute of Natural Resource Analysis and Management biodiversity database, you can see it’s been primarily found in Hidalgo and Catron counties in New Mexico, with a few straggles elsewhere, including one in Spruce Park here in Albuquerque.
