Liquidambar styraciflua 'Slender Silhouette' (Sweetgum)
This tall columnar cultivar will maintain its shape uniformly, growing upwards with the top of the tree about the same width as near the bottom. It will grow to a height of 50 to 60’ and a width of 5 to 6’. This variety’s slender habit makes it ideal for thin or narrow spaces like medians and small gardens as a vertical accent plant. The columnar form also makes it a great choice as a screen or tall planting that borders along property lines.
