This is one of those trees that takes your breath away with its colour. The upright pyramidal form puts on a stunning show as the large star-shaped leaves change from resplendent green to gold, then vibrant orange. The colour show reaches its attention grabbing crescendo when the red, crimson and purple shades come though. It’s a display suited to avenues, laneways and entranceways.
Suitable for: Avenues, laneways and entrances, group planting.
Features: Excellent autumn colour, one of the hardiest Liquidambars.
Botanical Name: LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua Worplesdon
