Columnar Taller than 12 metres/ 1st size Half-open crown

Liquidambar styraciflua 'Paarl' bears a strong resemblance to the species but is distinguished by a crown that is columnar to narrow pyramidal. The thick side branches grow upwards close to the trunk. Height 20 - 25 m. The trunk turns grey and has deep grooves. Young twigs are yellowish-green and turn reddish-brown. The 5-lobed (sometimes 7-lobed) leaves are dark green, leathery and deeply incised. The autumn colour only appears at a late stage. The leaves turn yellow to orange. The brown spiky fruit capsules, measuring approx. 2.5 cm, appear following the unremarkable flowering. They remain hanging in the tree for a long time. This cultivar was discovered by the Lappen tree nursery in Paarl, South Africa, and has been cultivated from about 1990. Winter hardiness zone: 5b
