Sweetgum – Slender Silhouette, scientifically known as Liquidambar Styraciflua Slender Silhouette, is a deciduous tree prized for its remarkably narrow and upright form. With a mature height of up to 50 feet and a width of only 10 feet, this stunning columnar tree is an ideal choice for adding vertical interest and structure to the landscape.

In addition to its slender silhouette, this variety of sweetgum offers attractive foliage and vibrant fall colors. The forest green deciduous leaves provide a lush backdrop during the growing season. As autumn approaches, the lobed palmate leaves undergo a breathtaking transformation, turning shades of striking orange, yellow, and red, adding a splash of vivid color to the landscape.

Slender Silhouette Sweet Gum thrives in full sun exposure and well-draining soil conditions. It is recommended to water this tree regularly to maintain its health and vigor, especially during dry periods. While this cultivar is a beautiful addition to any garden or landscape, it's worth noting that the fruit produced by sweetgum trees can be messy and may require occasional clean-up.

Overall, the Sweetgum – Slender Silhouette is an excellent choice for garden accents, articulation, or narrow spaces where a tall, slender tree is desired. Its elegant form, vibrant foliage, and compact size make it a standout specimen that adds beauty and visual interest to outdoor spaces throughout the year.
