For optimal growth, the Wildfire Black Gum Tree thrives in a location with full sun to partial shade. Plant it in well-drained, moist, and rich acidic soils with a pH level between 4.5 and 5.5. Regular watering is essential, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. While the tree can tolerate occasional wet conditions, it should not be exposed to standing water. Pruning is generally low maintenance, with the best time for any necessary trimming being late winter. This impressive tree will reward your efforts with its stunning foliage and vibrant colors throughout the seasons.
