Sweet Gum Seedlings are deciduous trees of the Altingiaceae family. They are famous for ornamental landscaping that's sophisticated enough to display olfactory promenades, delivering a pleasantly memorable scent. The tree matures into a conic egg shape, simultaneously presenting colorful yellow, beige, green, and red during Autumn.

It thrives in Hardy Planting Zone #5 and can tolerate zones 6 through 9; it prefers deep, moist soil. It's flexible because you may successfully plant it in areas of full sunshine that are equally as partly shady.

These trees grow well in soil from clay to sand and acidic to somewhat alkaline. Landscapers also appreciate its symmetrical character. This tree is called Alligator wood, American Storax, American Sweetgum, Bilsted, Hazel Pine, Redgum, Satin Walnut, and Star-Leaved Gum. Usual cultivation enjoys a 50—to 70-ft (15- 21m) mature tree for generations, while it may grow as tall as 150ft (46m) in the wild and is known to live as long as 400 years.

Its bark presents an attractive light brown or grey with speckles of red throughout jagged-edged vertical streaks, and its signature balls are reminiscent of a starfish in a 3D pop-up book. The 5-point greenish-to-brown flowers begin to show from March to May and continue on display throughout Autumn. The wood of this tree is harvested for many productive uses, and the sap it yields develops into resin that is similarly helpful and is what gifts us with the pleasure of its aroma.

Sweet Gum Seedlings are Perfect for Shade and Encircling Large Lawns

Once planted, they require little care other than occasional watering. The seedlings take root quickly and are perfect shade trees or lovely encircle a large lawn once growing towards full height. While beautiful all year round with their spiky seed pods and star-shaped leaves, these trees are incredibly gorgeous in the fall when they turn stunning shades of purple, pink, orange, and yellow. The seed pods remain on the tree throughout winter, adding much-needed vibrancy and color to a dull landscape.

These trees are good to use on a lawn and look amazing as they have beautiful crowns. They can work great to create a lovely shady spot for a yard and provide gorgeous color in the summer as they are covered with bright green leaves. The leaves change to orange and golden yellow during the fall months.
