Liquidamber Styraciflua - American Sweetgum Tree
Similar in appearance to the Acer maple tree, the sweet gum tree or liquidambar is named for its fragrant resin. Liquidamber Styraciflua is a native to South East USA and Mexico.
It forms a broadly conical shape and can grow up to 25 meters tall, though can be found to grow almost twice this height in optimum conditions. In autumn, leaves turn from green to many shades of Orange Yellow Red and Purple, making this a popular ornamental tree.
Considered fully hardy to -15°C under.
