Liquidambar styraciflua

  • Common Name: Sweet gum
  • Starting at:

    £0.00 ex-VAT

Deciduous. A beautiful tree with maple-like leaves. The corky bark is attractive but its main glory is in autumn when the leaves turn red, purple and gold. Liquidambar is one of the very best trees for autumn colour, and one of the last deciduous trees to drop its leaves, often sustaining its fiery display into December. Will tolerate a degree in lime, but best in acid to neutral soil. 6m tall in 10 years. Young trees of this species can be fragile in the wind, so the leader is often caned to prevent breakage. The cane should remain in the tree for 2-3 years from date of planting. Flat far-reaching roots.
