Black Gum - Nyssa Sylvatica
Black Gum offers a great show piece 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.
ReviewsBarrett MThe tree is looking great. It really likes where it is planted and spring has brought it to life. There are absolutely no problems with the tree. I would highly recommend this tree.
