Nyssa sylvatica

The ‘water nymph of the forest’. This poetic translation of Nyssa sylvatica lives up to its name, because it is a beautiful species that also does well in more humid locations.

The reason to plant this tree is its phenomenal autumn colour. Sometimes yellowish, but usually a brilliant orange and fiery red autumn colour.

Nyssa sylvatica is known for its beautiful, broad pyramidal crown whose branches droop slightly. We also occasionally have beautiful multi-stemmed trees in the nursery. A lovely tree for a park garden or along the water's bank.
