Tupelo. This chance seedling was discovered in Australia and it has a strongly weeping habit. The summer foliage is large, dark green and shiny. The autumn colour is simply glorious. Happy in a sunny wind free spot in moisture retentive soil. Spectacular draped over a pond or stream. Deciduous.
Nyssa means water nymph and the common name Tupelo is the American Indian word for Nyssa. Sylvatica means of woods or forests where this tree would naturally grow. There endeth the lesson.
The Tupelo or Sour Gum is an elegant specimen tree highly rated for spectacular autumn colour and the fact that it flourishes in swampy conditions. The summer foliage is glossy green, lower branches are slightly pendulous in habit. Happy in sun or part shade. Deciduous. Est.10yr.growth.
Choose the planting spot for your Nyssa with care as unlike most of my plants they don't like having a ride in the wheel-barrow to a new position.
