Sweetgum seed

Liquidambar styraciflua


This sweet gum seed had a circular shape and spiky edges. It was a dark brown color. It was on the ground by itself, with many other seeds within the general vicinity.


These seeds come from the gumball tree. These trees are found along the Atlantic Coast. They are very abundant in size and can hold very many sweet gum seeds.
