Worplesdon Sweetgum is an English selection well suited to the unpredictable climate of Northern and Western Europe, that also does well in the United States. With a pyramidal to oval form, the crown is initially narrow and broadens with maturity. Light glossy green palmate leaves have consistent apricot orange to purple fall color. The fruit is persistent, and the bark is smoother and less corky than the species. An excellent lawn or street tree. A G. Jackman and Sons introduction from England.
