Nyssa ‘Tupelo Tower’ (black gum) 

Nyssa ‘Tupelo Tower’

This selection has a very tight, upright habit unlike the species. The lustrous dark green summer foliage turns impressive shades of orange in early fall. The upright narrow habit is ideal for smaller spaces and as an urban tree. Black gums prefer full sun to partial shade and will thrive with almost no maintenance once established. Great tree for wildlife.
