Couldn’t recommend and rate Cullen Nurseries more highly! They supplied excellent specimen shrubs and looked after all planting at a very competitive rate, not to mention a very speedy turn around. A super family run Irish business! Thanks Caitriona & Rob. M

So happy to have chosen Cullen Nurseries to supply, plant and fertilize our new Red Robin hedge. Great customer service from Caitriona and really pleased with the very professional job Rob & his colleague did planting them. Pics don't do them justice - this was the day they were planted - 61 x 2l Red Robins - really healthy looking plants. Delighted and looking forward to seeing them grow over the years. Thank you!

Liquidambar styraciflua – Sweetgum Tree

Introducing the majestic Liquidambar styraciflua, commonly known as the Sweetgum Tree. With its striking beauty and distinctive features, this deciduous tree is a perfect addition to your landscape.

Autumn Splendor: The Liquidambar is renowned for its breathtaking autumn display. As the seasons change, the tree’s glossy green leaves transform into a vibrant kaleidoscope of colors, ranging from fiery reds and oranges to deep purples. Enjoy a stunning burst of fall foliage that adds a touch of enchantment to any outdoor space.

Unique Star-Shaped Leaves: One of the tree’s standout features is its intricately shaped star-like leaves. These distinctively lobed leaves create a captivating texture and provide an intriguing visual appeal throughout the year.

Aromatic Resin: The Sweetgum Tree lives up to its name with its fragrant resin that exudes a sweet, balsamic scent when crushed. This aromatic quality adds a sensory dimension to your garden, making it an engaging choice for both sight and smell.

Year-Round Interest: While the autumn display is a highlight, the Sweetgum Tree offers beauty year-round. In spring, it produces small, inconspicuous flowers that give way to spiky fruit capsules. These capsules contain seeds and add a distinctive decorative element to the tree, even after the leaves have fallen.

Shade and Ornament: With its expansive canopy and broad leaves, this provides ample shade during the warmer months, creating a comfortable outdoor retreat. Additionally, its unique form and stunning foliage make it an attractive focal point in any landscape design.

Natural Beauty: Whether planted individually or in groups, the Sweetgum adds natural beauty and a touch of elegance to parks, gardens, and larger outdoor spaces. Its graceful silhouette and remarkable color transformation captivate onlookers, making it a favorite choice among landscape enthusiasts.
