Fresh Alternatives: 'Wildfire' Black Gum

(Nyssa sylvatica 'Wildfire')

In place of red maple, which has red foliage only in autumn, consider this tree, whose new spring growth emerges scarlet before turning dark green, then blazes red again in fall. Full sun to partial shade; 30 feet tall and wide. Zones 5-9.
