Sweet Gum

#36 - Sweet Gum (Liquidambar styraciflua 'Rotundiloba')

This cultivar of our native Sweet Gum gives us all the height and beauty without the messy fruit. The leaves have rounded lobes, yet still turn consecutive shades of yellow, purple, red and orange in the fall as in the straight species. The happy news is that it is seedless: no more endless raking up of those spiny round capsules.
