Carya ovata, Shagbark Hickory
A large pretty Missouri native tree, the Shagbark Hickory, Carya ovata, creates a large canopy perfect for places that need shade. The tall straight trunk features bark that peals away in large curly pieces giving the tree its name. Male flowers of long caskins pollinate the short female flowers on the same tree. The female flowers give way to nuts that are encased in a green husk that ripen in fall. These tasty nuts are considered some of most delicious nuts available on American trees. Though the Shagbark Hickory can self-pollinate, for best results plant two trees near each other.
