Sweetgum – One of a Kind Pre-Bonsai
SCIENTIFIC NAME: Liquidambar styraciflua
COMMON NAME: Sweetgum
MEASUREMENTS: 21″ (height) 2″ (nebari) 1 1/4″ (trunk at first branch) 10″ (pot)
Sweetgum grows very vigorously, producing shoots in a container that can grow up to two feet in length in a single season. Collected specimens back-bud very well, which allows the artist to select the branches necessary for producing a tree-like structure on a small scale. Sweetgum also grows continuously throughout the season. It isn’t bothered significantly by any pests or diseases, aside from munching caterpillars in spring. Likes partial sun in the hot summer.

Winter Shipping Info
At Wigert’s Bonsai we are able to ship trees year round, however shipping to areas where temperatures are below 35F can be risky.
“Winter Shipping is at Buyers Own Risk”. Unfortunately we cannot replace or refund trees if they are damaged in transit by the cold.
We recommend that you purchase a HEAT PACK at checkout. Also make sure to track the package so someone can be home to receive it so it will not sit outside in the cold. If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to contact us.
*We also offer Boarding Services if you want to purchase a tree and hold it here to ship at a later date . Contact us for Boarding fees.
