Looking for a unique and rare addition to your garden or woodland? Consider the Nutmeg Hickory (Carya myristiciformis), a member of the Walnut family found in small populations across the Southern United States and northern Mexico. This tree thrives in rich, moist soils of bottom lands and stream banks, providing heavy shade during the hot summer months. Mixed woodland planting underneath its branches is ideal for shrubs and other trees. Its oil-rich nuts make for a perfect food source for wildlife. While its wood is not highly sought after, this unique and rare species will surely make a stunning addition to any landscape.
