Picture of Liquidambar Festerii

aka Sweet Gum

An Australian variety noted for its smoothness of bark and brilliant autumn tonings. A beautiful specimen tree that will provide a blaze of colour in autumn, 'Festerii' is certainly worth planting. The dense green summer foliage turns to tones of yellow orange and red before leaf fall. Nice pyramidal shape. Plant in deep fertile soil. Deciduous.

'Festerii' is a particularly handsome specimen tree that needs space to grow and develop. The large, lobed, lush foliage is a fresh green in summer before putting on a fantastic autumn display. The autumn leaves hold on the tree well into winter.
