Nyssa sylvatica ‘Autumn Cascade’

Weeping Tupelo


  • One of the very best autumn coloured trees with a bright red early season display.
  • Weeping branches hang gracefully off the central leader.
  • Much slower growth rate than the straight sylvatica.
  • Avoid disturbing the roots.


  • Great as a lawn or garden specimen, even in smaller gardens.
  • In a garden border.

Growing Conditions

  • Tolerates very dry conditions (once established) but will also cope with swampy soils.
  • Moderately coastal and wind hardy.
  • Very frost hardy.
  • Full sun to part shade.
