Product Description

Sweet Gum Seedlings is a Popular Ornamental Deciduous 

Sweet Gum, This deciduous tree of the Altingiaceae family is famous for ornamental landscaping that’s sophisticated enough to display olfactory promenades delivering a pleasantly memorable scent. It matures into a conic egg shape presenting colorful leaves of yellow, beige, green, and red simultaneously during Autumn. It thrives in Hardy Planting Zone #5 and can tolerate zones 6 through 9 also, preferring deep, moist soil. It’s flexible in that you may successfully plant it in areas of full sunshine equally as partly shady. Likewise, Sweetgum Trees grow well in 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. The 5 point greenish to brown flowers begins to show from March to May and continue on display throughout Autumn. The wood of this tree is harvested for many productive uses, and the sap it yields develops into resin similarly helpful and is what gifts us with the pleasure of its aroma.
