Liquidambar syraciflua 'Silver King'

What a great show!
Liquidambar syraciflua 'Silver King'
American Sweetgum - variegated

This great cultivar shouts with color in the landscape and is great against darker backgrounds. Following the spring/summer color show, fall brings very dark shades of plum purple and then red prior to release.

  • Height/Spread: grows to 15 - 20ft tall by 10 - 12ft wide.
  • Foliage: white/green variegation takes the summer heat well.
  • Autumn Color: a spectacular show: leaf margins tinged with pink.
  • Location: prefers full sun. Tolerates partial shade, but variegation    suffers with more shade.
  • Hardiness: zone 5 - 9

  • Ingleside currently has 'Silver King' available in both 1.75-2" #25 and 2-2.5" #25 sizes.  Call us for more details!
