Liquidambar

Liquidambar

Liquidambar or Sweet Gum, so named for the styrax sap used in perfumes, is a large deciduous genus much prized for the rich autumn leaf tones: yellow, orange red, crimson, even in the warm coastal zones of Sydney. Liquidambars are stately shade and avenue trees with large green palmate leaves, their flowers are not apparent, but the rough green spiky balls of seed capsules hang on the end of the branches, aging to brown through Winter. This attractive genus of park-sized trees are too large to irrigate, so need to be planted on a deep well drained moist soil (especially Spring/Summer). Liquidambars are sensitive to alkaline soils but are frost tolerant.
