Liquidambar styraciflua 'Gold Beacon' (Sweet Gum)
A very cool cultivar of our Kentucky native. 'Gold Beacon' is a fast growing tree to 40' or so in 15-20 years and have bright yellow new growth. Like the straight species it will have the same bright red to purple fall color. This is a great tree to place in a new garden for quick size and presence. These plants were grown in a 3 Liter Root Maker container that prevents girdling roots and promotes a better root system while still in the container. This allows for faster establishment when planted in the ground!
