Multiple Fascinating Features in One Superior Tree

Sweet Gum provides superb shade and fall color with its rounded crown and brilliant autumn shades of yellow, red and purple.  Each 7-inch, toothed leaf is so deeply lobed that it resembles a star and emits a pleasing fragrance when crushed.  Yellow, spring flowers lead to clusters of round, bristly fruit that decorate the tree for winter.  The tree’s “gum” offers a variety of uses, and is a sure conversation starter.

A fast-growing tree that easily reaches over 60 feet tall, Sweet Gum is sure to provide you with years of fascination.
