Picture of Nyssa Sylvatica

The Tupelo or Sour Gum is an elegant specimen tree highly rated for spectacular autumn colour and the fact that it flourishes in swampy conditions. The summer foliage is glossy green, lower branches are slightly pendulous in habit. Happy in sun or part shade. Deciduous. Est.10yr.growth.

Choose the planting spot for your Nyssa with care as unlike most of my plants they don't like having a ride in the wheel-barrow to a new position.
