An elegant weeping form, Liquidambar styraciflua 'Pendula' is unusual and grows to be a small, spreading tree with dark green leaves in spring / summer and good red, orange and yellow autumn colour. Once established, it also develops a ornamental, thick, corky bark!

The spreading, gently weeping habit makes this tree looks particularly effective when overhanging streams or paths.

  • Hardiness: Reasonably hardy. Young plants can suffer die back after very severe late spring frosts, but usually recover well.
  • Rate of Growth: Moderate.
  • Habit: Liquidambar styraciflua 'Pendula' grows to be a small, spreading  tree with stiffly weeping branches.
    • Height: 6 m (20 ft).

  • Notes: The autumn colour of individual plants will vary according to weather and in particular the pH of your soil. The best, most vivid colours will occur in lime-free or acid soils. A liberal annual application of flowers of sulphur around the base of a Liquidambar, at a rate of up to 2 oz. per square yard on neutral or slightly alkaline soils will slowly lower the pH and intensify the autumn colour!
