Liquidambar styraciflua Stared

  • Height 10 years: 2.5m-3.5m / 8ft-12ft

Stared is a form of the North American sweet gum. It is named for its small dainty 7-lobed leaves which are deeply incised and resemble stars.

As you would expect from a Liquidambar, the leaves take on vibrant red and orange colours in autumn.

Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches. The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).

How to grow

Stared is a bit smaller than most Liquidambars, and more slow-growing, making it ideal for bringing autumn colour to smaller gardens.
