The Burgundy Liquidambar (Liquidambar styraciflus 'Burgundy') features beautiful deep, red long-lasting fall color and a wonderfully bold, upright character. This tree makes a statement in any yard with its deeply textured corky trunk and distinctive large, star-shaped leaves, which turn heads in fall.

You may also be looking for a tree that develops "knock your socks off", incredibly brilliant fall color. Well, this is it!

The outstanding color spans across shades from deep crimson, to glistening burgundy tones that seem to shimmer in the daytime sunlight. The display lasts for over a month - even if you live in a warmer climate! 

And when space is limited, this modern variety is the right choice. As a columnar tree, it will grow tall, but not too wide for you. The Burgundy’s canopy presents a dense columnar appearance with dark rich summer green foliage. 

This ornamental tree fits into side yards and around the landscape just beautifully. Give it at least 10 feet from patios, sidewalks or walkways. Use it to block the hot afternoon sun, accent your property line, or plant in multiples to create a delightfully shady summer sitting area. A wonderful tree to line a driveway with or to screen out an unwanted view. The Burgundy’s beautiful balance structure make it a very formal looking tree in the landscape. 

Not many other trees offer the narrow habit that has become so useful in the modern-day smaller yards and urban conditions. But standing back one will notice that the narrow Burgundy is a very balanced pyramidal tree that tapers down from a central leader. 

With today's smaller lot sizes, the Burgundy Liquidambar might be the perfect all-round shade tree. It's easy to grow, and will achieve good height quickly. Order yours today!
