Looking for a beautiful ornamental tree that can provide both shade and colorful fall foliage? Look no further than Nyssa sylvatica, also known as Beetlebung, Black Tupelo, Blackgum, Pepperidge, and Sourgum. This deciduous tree is native to eastern North America and can grow up to 80 feet tall. Its leaves are variable in size and shape, with lustrous surfaces that turn purple in autumn and eventually become an intense bright scarlet. The tree's fruits are edible raw or cooked and are an important food source for many bird species. Additionally, honey bees make sweet tupelo honey from Nyssa sylvatica's flowers. The wood of this tree is heavy, hard, and difficult to split, making it perfect for use in making mauls, pulleys, bowls, and more. Plant Nyssa sylvatica in a sheltered but not crowded position for optimal growth and enjoy its beauty for years to come.
