An attractive ornamental tree.  The Sweetgum Tree (Liquidamber styraciflua 'Worplesdon') cloaks itself in appealing decorative foliage.  Frequently, considered to be related to maples as its leaves are somewhat similar in shape, but no relation!.  In North and Central America, this is a native woodland tree, with its timber imported as satin walnut for furniture.  However, in Britain, it is the more the foliage that makes it worthy of planting.  When its foliage is crushed, it gives a rather pleasant, sweet resinous aroma. Expect a final height of 28m (93ft 4in).  A large garden is a pre-requisite, to truly appreciate this tree.

Our Sweetgum Tree is supplied at a height of between 150 - 200cm in a 7 - 12 L container for year round planting and better results than from bare-root or root balled stock.

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

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.

Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season. 

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.

UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.

Climate Change
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy. 

Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it.
