Liquidambar styraciflua 'Rotundaloba'

Fruitless Sweetgum is a fruitless version of our native sweetgum. Fruitless Sweetgum seems to grow more narrow than the species but as tall. The leaves are lobed like the species but the lobes are rounded as opposed to pointed. As the name suggests, this cultivar does not produce the messy fruit, making it a better choice for the lawn.
