Liquidambar styraciflua 'Palo Alto'

Liquidambar styraciflua 'Palo Alto'

To me this is the finest form of the American Sweet Gum, with its maple-like leaves turning an extremely bright, long lasting, scarlet and orange in autumn. Will make a medium sized tree eventually. Very hardy and tolerant but not for shallow chalk soils. Autumn colour is better if sited in full sun.
