The Facts

Height: 40′ – 50’
Spread: 20′ – 30′
Sun: Full Sun
Water: Medium to Wet
Soil: Well-Drained
Growth Rate: Slow

The Wildfire Blackgum bursts to life each spring with bright red foliage followed by clusters of white blooms that provide an excellent source of nectar for pollinators and birds. These blooms give way to dark blue fruits that, while edible, are very sour and usually left to the birds. The dark green summer foliage turns to shades of scarlet, yellow and orange for a brilliant fall display. Its red-tinged branches add interest in the winter landscape.

High adaptability, relatively low maintenance and its many attractive qualities make this an excellent shade tree choice for lawns or along streets.
