This is an extremely narrow columnar tree with a strong architectural form and striking autumn colour. Growing to approximately , Liquidambar styraciflua 'Slender Silhouette' really lives up to its name.  The polished, deeply lobed foliage is lush green through spring and summer, before turning vivid shades of purple, red and orange in autumn.

This Columnar Sweet Gum is ideal in a small garden where height is desirable, for use as a focal point, breaking up the appearance of ugly buildings or planted in rows to create a formal avenue. Given a relatively moist well-drained soil, 'Slender Silhouette' is a hardy Sweet Gum tree that will withstand periods of drought and  temporary flooding once established.
