Sweetgum 'Slender Silhouette'

3 Gallons
  • Pollinator value: Very high.  Benefits native bees, honey bees, wasps, flies and beetles, and many bird species feast on the seeds.

    Dubbed 'Slender silhouette,' this cultivar grows in a column, with a spread of only 4 to 6 feet so that its infamous hard, spiky seed balls fall close to the trunk and not all over the lawn.  Its fall foliage can offer a brilliant mix of yellows, oranges, reds, and purples.
