Tupelo Black Gum Nyssa Sylvatica tree

Tupelo - Nyssa Sylvatica trees are grown entirely for their good autumn colourings. The glossy leaves, 5-15cm in length and retaining  their high gloss as they turn gold, after which the outer leaves turn through orange to scarlet. It's then at its best, after which the whole crown is scarlet and dark red. A fine sight. The best specimens were planted in Sheffield Park in 1909 but many were lost in the gales of 1987.

Eventual height can reach 12 meters and 8 meters spread


Sunny position moist soil
