A natural variety of L. formosana. Preferred for planting in our climate rather than the species because it resists frost better. The tree has numerous branches and grows with a vigorous vertical trunk that is grey and smooth. Young twigs change colour from olive-green to brownish-grey. This Liquidambar does not have corky wings. The leaves are 8 – 15 cm long and 10 – 17 cm wide. It is always 3-lobed, in contrast to the species which also has 5-lobed specimens. The hairless leaves are matt-glossy and turn to a particularly beautiful scarlet-red in autumn. Prefers a sheltered site.
