Out of Stock



Product Description:

Black gum features a lovely spectrum of glowing, brilliant shades of yellow, orange, red, and purple.  Late spring flowers, while insignificant, are valuable for bees and other pollinators, and the bluish-black drupes that appear in late September (female trees only) are favored by many birds.  Reaching heights of 30-50’, the tree has a pyramidal form when young, becoming more open with age. Prefers sites protected from wind in sun to partial shade with moist, well-drained soils.  Tolerant of black walnut trees and wet soils.
