Go Back Oak Swamp White

Quercus bicolor
Deer Resistant Icon

Plant Type: Deciduous Trees

The bark resembles the White Oak. The leaves are broad ovoid, 12-18 cm (4-7 in) long and 7-11 (3-4 in) cm broad, always more or less glaucous on the underside, and are shallowly lobed with five to seven lobes on each side, intermediate between the Chestnut Oak and the White Oak. In autumn, they turn brown, yellow-brown, or sometimes reddish, but generally, the color is not as reliable or as brilliant as the White Oak can be. The fruit is an acorn, 1.5-2 cm long and 1-2 cm (.4-.8 in) broad, maturing about 6 months after pollination.
