Liquidambar styraciflua

Sweet Gum

  • New in 2015
Prized for its glorious foliage, this vibrant deciduous tree will rival any Maple. Liquidambar styraciflua has a broadly conical habit that makes a superb specimen for larger gardens. Although Sweet Gum enjoys an acid or neutral soil, it is particularly useful in tricky chalky areas as it is lime-tolerant, given sufficient depth of soil. Inconspicuous late spring flowers are followed by clusters of fascinating spiky fruits. The palmate foliage of the Sweet Gum emerges on corky shoots in spring, and remains a lovely fresh green colour, before turning to fiery shades of red, orange and purple. This majestic tree requires little maintenance once established and makes a wonderful specimen as a stand-alone feature or grown at the edge of woodlands. Height: 25m (80'). Spread: 12m (40').
