Witch-Hazel Family (Hamamelidaceae)
This ironwood tree is native to an area between Iran and Azerbaijan. It has a wonderful blossom crown in spring and the leaves are bright yellow to red coloured in autumn.
The Sweetgum comes from North America. The resinous sap running from the wounded bark was previously used in chewing gum production. The tree has a slim crown and is also often found in private gardens, because it has beautiful autumn colors.
