A Sweet Gum with deeply cut, star-like leaves.
This Sweet Gum with deeply cut star-like leaves resembles a semi dwarfing clone of Liquidambar Worplesdon.
Prized for its autumn colour, this is a wonderful tree for a medium to large garden. Its bark is smooth rather than corky.
The bright green foliage of spring and summer turns from golden yellow through to crimson as autumn progresses.
Stella is a medium to large tree of pyramidal habit; its leaves are similar to, but slightly smaller than, Worplesdon.
Suitable for streets, avenues and parks, it does best in fertile, well drained soils.
It does not thrive in chalky soils.
Mature height: 10-15m
