Swamp white oak is native to southern Minnesota, and it has a broad, rounded form when mature. During the growing season, the leaves have a two-toned appearance with a dark green, glossy top and silver-white underside. The foliage turns yellow to bronze in the fall, and the peeling bark provides winter interest. This is an excellent tree for wildlife and is one of the faster growing oak tree species. It is tolerant of clay soil, and dry to wet soil conditions making it suitable for a lawn or wetland/pond edge. Full sun.
