Liquidambar orientalis


Naturalized non-invasive (NN)

At Tala (division 1) the species is naturalized, possibly since a long time. Young plants have been observed among the older ones. The situation was similar at Antifonitis (division 7) but after the opening of bore holes the spring dried out and the stand has been destroyed (G. N. Hadjikyriakou).


not endemic
