Black Gum - Nyssa Sylvatica


Black Gum offers a great showpiece in the fall months. With green, glossy leaves in the spring and summer months, the fall months offer a show of yellows, red, scarlet and orange! These colors attract birds of all species as well as the black gums sour berries which tend to get ripe before any other fruit. This tree has bark which resembles alligator hide because it is tough and a medium gray.
