Platanus x acerifolia ‘Morton Circle’ – Exclamation! London Planetree was introduced by the Chicagoland Grows program. It has a strong central leader and performs well on city streets. Exclamation! is anthracnose and powdery mildew resistant. It earns our “Tried & True” designation!
This Chicagoland Grows tree basically grows itself in our fields. It quickly takes shape and develops a full and even canopy. Exclamation! is one of the fastest growing trees in our rotation. At a young age in the field it can sometimes be a challenge to keep the vigorous top growth in check before the trunk has a chance to catch up. But in the end, it always finishes with a picture perfect form and makes quite a statement!
