Description
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').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant Liquidambar trees into any moist, fertile, well drained soil in sun or semi-shade. Although Liquidambar prefers a neutral to acid soil, it is lime-tolerant in chalky areas provided that it has sufficient depth of soil. For the best autumn colours, choose a position in full sun.
More Info
Feed and water regularly until fully established. Liquidambar will require very little pruning, however, damaged or misplaced shoots may be pruned out in winter or early spring while the tree is dormant.
