Introducing Quercus × schuettei or Schuette's oak, a unique hybrid species of white oak gracing the landscapes of Canada's Ontario and Quebec, along with multiple US states - Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Vermont, and Wisconsin. This splendid tree species is a natural offspring of swamp white oak (Quercus bicolor) and burr oak (Quercus macrocarpa), encountered where these two parent plants' territories intersect.
Elevating to 40-60 ft with a distinct conical growth form, Schuette's oak prefers the wet terrain of riverbanks, though it proves versatile, available from commercial nurseries for landscaping or street tree purposes. It is particularly effective in rain gardens, showing high tolerance to clay soils and erosion, and possessing pest-resistant attributes.
Fulfilling a dual-purpose, Schuette's oak not only adds beauty to any architecture but also contributes to nature, with its plentiful acorns serving as favorite wildlife forage. And there’s more – as fall arrives, prepare to watch in wonder as the leaves blanket the tree in stunning hues of yellowish-brown. Experience the splendor of the Schuette's oak for yourself!
