Liquidambar Styraciflua Gum Ball
Liquidambar is a small genus of deciduous trees with maple-like alternate leaves that usually colour well in autumn. Liquidambar Styraciflua Gum Ball, also called Sweet Gum Gum Ball is the perfect sweet gum tree for small gardens! A dwarf cultivar of the North American native deciduous tree Liquidambar Styraciflua it was discovered in Tennessee in 1965 and grafted onto a clear stem to create an attractive round crown. Along with the deeply ribbed grey bark, the rounded mophead of this cultivar provide interest even in winter when its branches are bare. In late spring the maple-shaped, deeply lobed light green leaves emerge and darken to a deep glossy green over the summer until they turn bright shades of orange, red and purple in autumn, sometimes remaining on the tree well into the winter. Its insignificant flowers of April and May produce small, brown spiky balls which remain on the tree after the leaves have fallen.

Height and Spread of Liquidambar Styraciflua Gum Ball
Liquidambar Styraciflua Gum Ball will grow to 1.5-2.5 metres high in 10 years, slowly reaching a mature height of 3-5 metres and spread of 2-4 metres.

How to Use Liquidambar Styraciflua Gum Ball
