The Dapple Designs Expert Says:

Liquidambar styraciflua is a tall deciduous tree which is native to North America. They are well known for vibrant displays of coloured foliage in the Autumn months when they turn shades of orange, red, yellow and purple. A great tree if you have the room and live in cooler areas. Make sure to plant this tree away from sewer lines and services as the roots a quite vigorous.
