                      American Sweet Gum is famous for its striking feature - its shiny, star-like, green foliage that changes into yellow, red, orange and purple during Fall. It grows like a pyramid during its formative years, but will change into a ring-like canopy as it matures. You will need enough space for its roots to grow since it forms an important taproot that can resist high level of soil moisture. Aside from using its bark's resin to produce chewing gums, it also has medicinal benefits and can also be used in perfumes. It is also a typical source of plywood and hardwood. The American Sweet Gum can grow up to 75 feet high, with a width of 50 feet. It loves full sun and requires to be under the sun for at least 6 hours. It is tolerant to dry soil and doesn't need irrigation once established. It is low maintenance so it is easy to take care of.

                      Excellent experience

                      It was delivered on time, the instructions were easy to understand. Preparation and planting went well and the azalea appears to be doing well. Our family is exceptionally happy with this experience. I will be making plans for my future bios urn shortly. Thank you.
