The amber tree originates from America. It is highly appreciated for its fantastic autumn colors, which it displays in the fall (from October to the end of November). The colors range from yellow and orange to bright red. The leaves of the tree are star-shaped with five lobes. When you buy a young tree, the branches are smooth. But as it gets older, corky ridges form. These corky ridges are wings on the bark of corky dead tissue. This makes the tree beautiful to behold.
At Amitis, you can find various varieties of the amber tree. For example, we sell the Liquidambar styraciflua, as well as the Liquidambar styraciflua 'Slender Silhouette' and Liquidambar styraciflua 'Aurea.' The Slender Silhouette is ideal for people with a small garden who still want to enjoy a beautiful amber tree. This type of tree grows narrow and columnar. This variety also has no corky ridges on the bark and leaves with striking autumn colors. The Aurea is a cultivar of the Liquidambar styraciflua. It stands out with its yellow-variegated foliage in spring and summer and a slower growth rate.
At Amitis, we understand the value of a healthy and well-maintained amber tree in your garden. This beautiful tree, known for its spectacular autumn colors and elegant form, is an enrichment for any outdoor space. Here are some tips for caring and maintaining your amber tree:
The amber tree is a robust and resilient tree that can thrive with minimal care. Regular watering and annual fertilization with a slow-release fertilizer will contribute to healthy growth.
Pruning is essential to maintain the shape of your amber tree and remove dead or damaged branches. It is advisable to prune in late winter or early spring when the tree is dormant.
The amber tree prefers a moist, well-draining soil and a sunny to semi-shady location. A mulch layer around the base helps retain moisture and suppress weeds.
Young amber trees can benefit from some protection against severe winter cold. A protective cover or straw around the base can help.
