The Red Rage Tupelo is an outstanding selection of the black tupelo, a native tree of the east, which grows in many different conditions, including wet and dry soils. It has reliable and spectacular fall colors of brilliant reds and handsome glossy, dark-green summer leaves. This tree has a pyramidal form with a strong central trunk, growing at a moderate pace to over 40 feet tall and 20 feet wide – a narrow size suitable for smaller gardens. Grow it as a shade tree or specimen on a lawn, by water or mixed with other trees. It’s ideal for natural plantings.

  • Spectacular and reliable scarlet fall colors
  • Very attractive glossy green summer leaves
  • Pyramidal form for a beautiful shade or specimen tree
  • Grows well in moist to wet soils, but also drought resistant
  • Clean tree with no fruit dropping

Full sun or light shade both suit the Red Rage Tupelo, which grows best in slightly acidic, moist soils, but is very adaptable, growing well in all but the most alkaline soils, both wet and dry. A good choice for wet areas that are often flooded, or beside water. It is generally pest free and resistant to the black spot fungus that often damages trees of this species. No particular care is needed, and since it doesn’t make fruit it is an exceptionally clean tree for your garden.
