Sweet Gum tree 

Emanating in the eastern United States, the Sweet Gum tree (Liquidamber styraciflua) is a handsome species grown for its attractive, glossy, maple-like leaves that can turn brilliant crimson, purple and orange in the autumn. As these trees are seed grown there is considerable and interesting variation in the intensity of the autumn colours.  The older stems have corky bark.

A medium height tree, so expect a height of up to 6 metres (20 foot) after 10 years. 

This tree is supplied at a height of 100-180cm in a 7-12 litre container for year round planting and better results than from either bare-root or rootballed stock. 

Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

See What Our Previous Customers Are Saying About Our Sweet Gum trees
Dear dogsbody, As one of the oppressed race like yourself, I have been tasked with the job of replying to your e-mail. My partner, Patsy and I are delighted with the condition of the Sweet Gum tree, and I am sure he/she/it will grow up to be a credit to you and your nursery. We have given it a drink and will plant it tomorrow when the phases of the moon are in confluence with our house and the oblicuity of the ecliptic is correct. I have been tasked to mention that when Patsy spoke to one of your minions (or even your gooodself), she was told the tree was an evergreen, is this in fact correct? as there are no leaves present? Many thanks, Alan, a pleasure to do business with such a  lively company. Editors note: Gum trees e.g. Eucalyptus are evergreen, however this tree is deciduous. 

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Multiple Order Discount
Orders over £300 can be discounted by contacting us on 0800 043 1057

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
