Liquid Amber (Liquidambar styraciflua)
The Liquid Amber tree are brilliant. Water-wise, deciduous trees often are grown for their amazing show of vibrant fall color and maple-like leaves. The 'Sweet Gum', as it is often referred, is a medium to large tree on average and grows in a symmetrical shape that crowns into a cone-like shape. They thrive in full sun and are great around patios or when used as a centerpiece in many landscape styles.
The real brilliance of the Liquid Amber can be seen during the fall when its rich dark green, shiny, maple-like leaves turn a vibrant orange, red and purple. This transformation resembles that of a flame and will leave all of your neighbors drooling with envy.
