Black Gum ‘Wildfire’
Wildfire Black Gum (Tupelo, Sour Gum) has forest green foliage which emerges red in spring. The glossy pointy leaves turn an outstanding crimson in the fall. The furrowed black bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape. This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting birds to your yard.
