Introducing the Liquidambar Formosana Chinese Sweet Gum, Formosan Gum, and Formosan Sweetgum! This remarkable tree is primarily found in woodland areas within warm temperate zones, particularly in East Asia. Its preferred environment includes moist soil and it can thrive in both lightly shaded and sunny areas. Known for its impressive height of up to 30-40m, this native deciduous tree boasts leaves that are distinctively three-lobed, unlike the five- to seven-lobed leaves of its American Liquidambar counterparts. Come autumn, the foliage of the Liquidambar Formosana showcases a stunning red color that adds a touch of beauty to any landscape. The leaves grow in an alternate arrangement and feature simple, palmately-veined structures with serrated margins. This species produces an aromatic resin that is harvested from the trunk in autumn and has various medicinal uses. In its native regions, the wood is also utilized for creating tea chests and the leaves are used as nourishment for silk worms. Liquidambar Formosana is truly a captivating and versatile tree that adds splendor and functionality to any garden or natural area. Discover the beauty and benefits of this tree today!
