LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Aureavariegata'
The name has been changed - see Liquidambar styraciflua 'Variegata'

LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Aurora'
A useful selection being more compact in habit, forming a tidy conical tree. Less vigorous, the leaves are closer together, so the tree is denser when young.

LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Burgundy' 
Possibly the best for autumn colour (hence the name!) and slightly more rounded lobes to the leaves.

NEW LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Emerald Sentinel'

LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Frosty'
Recent selection with pretty silvery-white speckled foliage as the foliage matures.

LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Golden Sun' 

LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Golden Treasure' 
Quite superb slow growing form distinct symmetrical margins of bright yellow on the glossy green leaves. The autumn colour is simply stunning; the central green portion colours first to deep, deep purple, still with a golden margin. It then extends across the leaf. 

LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Goldmember' 

NEW LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Gumball' 
An incredible form since it is not a tree at all; more a mound! 2m. It still has those wonderful autumn colours which are retained for longer into the winter.

NEW LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Happy Days' 
Brand new selection.

NEW LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Kia' 
Excellent autumn colours of oranges and reds without being too dark and dreary.

LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Midwest Sunset' 
It's odd how it happens...this cultivar originated in Oklahoma in the 1960s, yet somehow it never caught on. Yet recently it has started to become more popular in Europe - so why has it taken most of 50 years? Clearly the name was selected to convey the idea that the autumn leaves develop all the colours of a Midwest sunset. Sounds good! It's a relatively recent addition to our collection, so I shall be interested to see how it compares with the others over the next few years.

NEW LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Moonbeam' 
Attractive form with butter-yellow young growth which is at its best in full sun. This develops into green through the summer and then bright red colour in the autumn.

NEW LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua 'Moraine'
