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.
