Father Pitt

Why should the beautiful die?


The Many Colors of the Sweetgum

No tree celebrates fall more enthusiastically than Liquidambar styraciflua, the North American sweetgum. Pittsburgh is a little north of its native range, but it has been adopted everywhere as a favorite urban planting. In the fall, its leaves turn every color of which autumn leaves are capable, all on the same tree—from bright yellow to the deepest eggplant purple.
