Product Details

For those of you who love the thought of a Liquidambar but haven’t the space in your garden to put in, there is fine option for you!

Liquidambar styraciflua Gumball is a mop headed tree that retains its dwarfing round shape.

Autumn colour is great, graduating to a deep claret in some years and the crop of 2015/16 retained this display thought the winter which was rather a surprise to us.

Thriving on most well drained soils, stay clear of heavily alkaline soils.

Often supplied as a half standard, this great autumn colour tree can be accommodated in most sized gardens.

Mature height 3-5m
