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
