Swamp White Oak
Despite the name, the Swamp White Oak not only thrives in moist, lowland sites, but also grows well in drier Australian conditions. A generally durable and long-lived tree that once established can be difficult to transplant. The broad, rounded crown creates a generous and deep shade with its thick fire-retardant foliage, shiny green and glossy on top and silvery-white underneath. Autumn colour is usually yellow with flushes of reddish-purple. A fine specimen or street tree that is adaptable to both dry and wet positions. Slow growth rate.
Plant in full sun, copes with inundation, low oxygen waterlogged soils as well as dry conditions. Not suitable for alkaline ares with pH >5.9.
