Black Gum | Nyssa sylvatica

Commonly called Black Tupelo, this slow growing tree is an excellent choice for a landscape shade tree and street tree. A North American native tree, the Black Gum will also grow in moist woodland areas for naturalizing. Excellent for using as a pollinator for bees and other insects.

Thank you to Howcheng for the use of his photo (above) of Black Gum leaves in fall color.
