Slender Silhouette Sweetgum

Standing up to 60 feet tall when fully mature, but with a spread of only six feet - now that is indeed slender. Perfect tree for smaller yards. Leaves are deep green and heavily lobed. Fall color is the usual stunning deep burgundy that sweetgum is noted for. Plant several in clusters or line a path or drive when landscaping.

Plant Features:

  • Height: 40 - 60'
  • Spread: 6 - 8'
  • Shape: Columnar
  • Foliage: Dark green
  • Fall Foliage: Yellow to reddish purple
  • Zone: 5 - 9

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!


Day one completed! Zehr’s Flowers and Landscaping are doing a wonderful job! I have been saving for this project for a long time and they are bringing my vision into reality! My dream patio, part of phase 1: Zehr’s Flowers and Landscaping outdid themselves!
