Slender Silhouette

Liquidambar styraciflua
Slender Silhouette has received the RHS Award of Garden Merit

All Liquidambar trees tend to have a fairly upright habit, but as its name suggests, Slender Silhouette has a particularly narrow columnar appearance.

In autumn the leaves take on yellow, red and purple hues.
