Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
An Asian Sour Gum or Tupelo related to our own eastern Nyssa sylvatica. This deciduous tree does flower, not that you would notice, but it does produce small bluish fruits in Fall. Fast-growing with largish leaves often carrying bronzy-purple tones when young. A moist acidic soil and sheltered from hot or freezing winds. Loves a woodland edge for example. From the borderlands of SE Yunnan and Vietnam and could easily be a species other than sinensis. A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering
