Quick Overview:

This Tupelo offers an extra season of brightly colored foliage. Reaches 30′-50.’ Spring brings a surprising flush of deep red new growth, which continues as long as new leaves emerge. Summer foliage is green, changing to autumn tints of orange-yellow to purplish red.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium to wet soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, acidic soils. Tolerates poorly-drained soils and can grow in standing water. On the other end of the spectrum, tolerates some drought and adapts to some dryish soils, at least in the wild. Long taproot precludes moving established trees. Female trees need a male pollinator to set fruit.
