QUERCUS LYRATA
Grower Notes:

Commonly known as the Overcup Oak. It gets its name from the distinctive bur-like acorn cup that typically encloses almost the entire nut. The Overcup oak has a straight trunk and a broad rounded crown.

It is a bottomland tree, native to floodplain forests, lowlands and along swamps. Deep green leaves have a fuzzy white underside and turn shades of yellow-brown in fall.

Female flowers develop acorns which mature in September to October, but do not begin bearing acorns until 25-30 years old. The bark is shaggy gray and is reminiscent of the white oak.
