A remarkable form of the styraciflua that has a very dense, shrubby habit with leaves that persist for an extended period and turn orange-red and a purple colour in winter. Needs an open, sunny position to colour well. Because of its distinctive, rounded, low-growing habit, this is a perfect subject for budding onto standards to give an amazingly effective topiary plant. Deciduous, grows to 4 x 2m.
Suitable for: Formal and feature planting, topiary uses
Features: Standard form, distinctive and unique ‘mophead’
Botanical Name: LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua ‘Gumball’
