Nyssa sylvatica - Black Tupelo

Black Tupelo

A beautiful slow-growing deciduous tree with an elegant, broadly conical habit. Though not standing out for any particular reason for most of the year, its exceptionally ordinary looking leaves have among the most stunning of autumn colours, starting by turning an intense red and slowly turning purple with light orange hues of pink and yellow before eventually falling. Nyssa sylvatica has another important feature in that its flowers are very valuable for bees and pollinators in general.
