Likewise, Sweetgum Trees grow well in any soil from clay to sand and from acidic to somewhat alkaline. Landscapers also appreciate its symmetrical character. The Sweet Gum Tree is commonly referred to as Alligator wood, American Storax, American Sweetgum, Bilsted, Hazel Pine, Redgum, Satin Walnut and StarLeaved Gum. Usual cultivation enjoys a 50 to 70ft (15 to 21m) mature tree for generations while it may grow as tall as 150ft (46m) in the wild and is known to live as long as 400 years. Its bark presents an attractive light brown or grey with speckles of red throughout jagged edged vertical streaks, and its signature balls are reminiscent of a starfish in a 3D pop-up book.

Sweet Gum Seedlings are Perfect for Shade and Encircling Large Lawns

Once planted, they require little care other than an occasional watering. The seedlings take root quickly and, once growing towards full height, are perfect shade trees or are lovely encircling a large lawn. While beautiful all year round with their spiky seed pods and star-shaped leaves, Sweet Gum trees are especially gorgeous in the fall when their leaves turn stunning shades of purple, pink, orange and yellow. The seed pods also remain on the tree throughout the winter months, adding much-needed vibrancy and color to a dull landscape.

Sweet Gum trees are good to use on a lawn and look amazing as they have beautiful crowns on them. They can work great to create a lovely shady spot for a yard and also provides gorgeous color in the summer as they are covered with bright green leaves. During the fall months, the leaves change to orange and a golden yellow.
