The American Sweetgum (or "Sweet Gum") tree is popular all over the world as a shade tree, but this variegated version doubles as a dazzling ornamental tree, too. Variegated Sweetgum's deep green leaves are so spattered and streaked with creamy yellow pigment, you might think it got too close to a banana smoothie when the lid flew off the blender! In fall, the leaves will put on a show for you when they take on pink, purple, and yellow tones, and in winter, the interesting spiky fruits (called "gumballs") will hang from the branches like an ornament. Planted as a showpiece in your front yard, this easy-to-grow native tree will sure have the neighbors talking!
