Carya illinonensis, Pecan Tree
The Missouri native Pecan, Carya illinoinensis, grows into a large stately tree ideal for spaces looking for a big showy giant. Growing 75-100′ tall, Pecan Trees provide shade, homes and food for the diverse Missouri wildlife. Male flowers of long caskins pollinate the short female flowers on the same tree. The female flowers give way to sweet pecan nuts that are encased in a green husk that ripen in fall. Though Pecan can self-pollinate for best results plant two trees near each other.
Fount naturally in the Mississippi river valley and its tributaries, plant Pecan Trees in moist, fertile soils. The largest of trees in the Hickory family.
