Sweet Gum

Botanical Name: Liquidambar styraciflua


This native shade tree offers some of the best fall foliage imaginable! It is truly spectacular! This handsome tree does come with one downside - the hard prickly seedpods, often called gumballs, can be a nuisance on the ground. Plant where the gumballs won't be a problem.

  • Excellent, very adaptable shade tree
  • Tolerates moist soil
  • Full Sun
  • 60-75' tall by 40-50' wide
  • Deciduous; loses leaves late in fall
  • Zone: 5 to 9
