The deciduous, fast growing Quercus nigra, is an attractive medium sized tree with an upright growth habit and a broad, rounded, symmetrical crown. The mid green spatula shaped leaves are small and are often quite variable in shape. The bark on young trees is smooth and grey in colour, turning darker and developing ridges on older trees. The flowers take the form of hanging catkins and appear shortly before the new leaves in spring. The acorns are small and very dark, the top of which is covered by a small flattened cap. The acorns take 2 years to reach maturity. This lovely tree thrives in full sun and prefers soil to which plenty of compost has been added. Moderate amounts of water throughout the year will ensure that the handsome Water oak grows optimally, rewarding one with a magnificent specimen tree in a few short years.
