These standard trees are Liquidamber styraciflua ‘Worplesdon’. Liquidambers are sometimes known as Sweet Gums and are very distinctive with their maple like leaves which turn a beautiful amber colour in the autumn. They are a very popular specimen garden tree and the Worplesdon is a particularly good variety of this tree.
Due to their size, delivery of these trees is quoted on an individual basis. Customers can of course collect from our nursery with their own transport.
Careful preparation of your planting site is important and we recommend mixing you soil with compost and/or farmyard manure to give your trees the best start. It is also extremely important to plant using a tree stake and tie to support your tree in its first few years to avoid it blowing over until its roots have properly established as anchors in the ground.
We also stock a range of other specimen trees suitable for garden planting. These can be viewed on our trees page.
